Chomp co-founder leaves Apple, Delta marketing VP joins

Apple loses quality director for Maps

One of the co-founders of Chomp, Cathy Edwards, is leaving Apple on April 11th, reports say. Edwards joined Apple in 2012 after it bought Chomp, which specialized in app search technology. She became Apple's head of Search and Measurement, working on the search systems used in Maps, iTunes, and the App Store. After Chomp was completely shut down, she became the director of Evaluation and Quality for Apple's Maps division.

Edwards is expected to take some time off work before finding a new job. It's not clear why she's leaving, but the timing -- two years after her start -- may imply that she's finished contractual terms and ready to move on.

Apple has meanwhile hired Delta Airlines' former VP of Marketing, Bob Kupbens. At his new employer, Kubpens will be taking a position as VP of Online Retail. The job will put him under Apple's new retail chief, former Burberry CEO Angela Ahrendts. It's unclear what's happening to his predecessor, Jennifer Bailey, but Bailey has been rumored as assuming control of a mobile payments project at Apple.
