Bob Mansfield Retiring from Apple
Thursday, June 28, 2012
Posted by: Staff

Apple today announced that Bob Mansfield, Apple's senior vice president of Hardware Engineering, will retire and the role will be transitioned to Dan Riccio, Apple's vice president of iPad Hardware Engineering, over several months. According to the company, the entire hardware engineering team will continue to report to Mansfield until his departure.

"Bob has been an instrumental part of our executive team, leading the hardware engineering organization and overseeing the team that has delivered dozens of breakthrough products over the years," said Tim Cook, Apple's CEO. "We are very sad to have him leave and hope he enjoys every day of his retirement."

As senior vice president of Hardware Engineering, Mansfield has led Mac hardware engineering since 2005, iPhone and iPod hardware engineering since 2010, and iPad hardware engineering since its inception. Mansfield joined Apple in 1999 when Apple acquired Raycer Graphics, where he was vice president of Engineering. Mansfield earned a BSEE degree from the University of Texas at Austin in 1982.

Sad to see him go. He always seemed like a classy and smart guy in the new product videos. He also seemed less dramatic than some of the others. I mean that in a good way too.

I can't recall hearing about him, but looking at his history at Apple, it looks like he has been an integral part of Apples hardware development.

I hope is able to enjoy whatever he moves on to!
