Update: Poornima Gupta from Reuters got a statement from Apple on Mansfield:

“Bob is no longer going to be on Apple’s executive team, but will remain at Apple working on special projects reporting to Tim [Cook],”

Apple Senior Vice President of Technologies Bob Mansfield has mysteriously disappeared from the executive organization chart on Apple’s website, as noted by MacRumors. Apple has not made any announcement regarding Mansfield, and it is unclear if this change is in error or if Mansfield has left the company. Last year, Mansfield announced his retirement, only to return to Apple in the new role of SVP of Technologies late last year. At that time, Tim Cook told employees that Mansfield would remain at Apple until late 2014.

No Technologies successor nor reasoning behind the decision announced. Perhaps Mansfield grew tired of the executive role and wanted to focus on the special projects which include the watch product.

We like to think something like this happened.

    Odd. Hope it is a mistake. They wouldn’t just take his picture down, without an announcement, would they?

    Noooo Big Bob what’s the deal!

    I remember him best from the introduction video of the unibody MacBook. I hope he stays with the company a whole longer, I’m sure he has made many great contributions


  4. Laughing_Boy48 says:

    He’s dead, Jim.


  5. His career direction was directed by Apple Maps. Either he’s retiring, at the bottom of San Fran Bay, or both.

    As Tim Cook dismantles Apple, all who care resign.


  7. He seems to still be a part of the leadership team in the India site..
