Bye Bye, Bob Mansfield? Not So Fast

Bob Mansfield leaves Apple executive team, but stays with the company.

What is up with Apple senior vice president of special projects Bob Mansfield? On Sunday afternoon his bio disappeared from the leadership page on Apple.com without explanation.

A kind of, sort of explanation was provided to All Things D, which inquired about Mansfield’s apparent loss of status.

“Bob is no longer going to be on Apple’s executive team, but will remain at Apple working on special projects reporting to [CEO] Tim [Cook],” said company spokesman Steve Dowling in a statement.

So, he gets to keep doing special stuff, but (speculation) doesn’t have to go meetings anymore?

Given his roughly $2 million per month in cash and stock compensation, it’s pretty obvious that Apple greatly values Mansfield’s contributions, which must be an interesting position to be in.

So, what is Bob Mansfield doing — wireless technology and semiconductors — that puts $2 million a month in his pocket AND he doesn’t have to go to meetings? I’m not sure if his position is enviable or rather that someone should be trying to organize his rescue…

What’s your take?
