Philip W. Schiller
Philip W. Schiller
Title: Senior vice president, worldwide product marketing

An avuncular, unthreatening presence, Schiller plays a slightly rotund Sancho Panza to Jobs' Quixote at nearly every Apple event. His deer-in-the-headlight performance -- caught on videotape -- when ambushed by a British TV reporter at the London unveiling of the iPhone contributed to the sense that Apple would be in trouble if Jobs were ever to leave. But it would be a mistake to underestimate Schiller. He has 24 years of marketing experience -- 17 of them at Apple -- and his official bio credits him with delivering a long list of "breakthrough" products: iMac, MacBook, Airport, Xserve, Mac OS X, Safari, AppleTV, iPod and iPhone.
