The general manager of Apple Switzerland, Adrian Schmucki, left his position at the end of May, Luzerner Zeitung reports. Schmucki told the newspaper his reason for leaving was early retirement. He held the position for almost thirteen years.

Previously, Schmucki worked for the telecom group Orange. His predecessor had also worked for Apple for more than ten years. Apple declined to comment. The US tech giant employs around 100 people in its headquarters in Zurich, and another 500 people work in branches elsewhere.
