Former Apple Retail SVP is working on a new gadget delivery service

When the proverbial seven year itch strikes, many a time one would want to try something new. Perhaps it is time for a change in your career, or perhaps to take a different direction that will open up the doors to new frontiers. Having said that, for those who have personally enjoyed the local Apple Store in recent times, you would have to credit former Apple executive Ron Johnson for the job that he has done in the past. It looks as though Johnson intends to make a comeback to the retail scene, and he intends to do so with a brand new startup that will offer “a high-end, on-demand delivery service for gadgets.”

The information published a report today with details about a new startup former Apple Retail SVP Ron Johnson is building. The report shares that Johnson is launching a new delivery service focused on tech products following his brief run as CEO of retailer JCPenney: “Ron Johnson, who left Apple in 2011 for a controversial stint as the CEO of J.C. Penney, is launching a high-end, on-demand delivery service for gadgets, according to several people who have talked to him about it. And he has recruited some former Apple employees, including one-time Apple VP executive Jerry McDougal, to help.” Jerry McDougal, who The Information says is working with Johnson on launching the startup, left Apple at the start of last year roughly a year and a half after Ron Johnson left to take the JCPenney CEO gig. For reference, Johnson remained in his CEO role for about three months after McDougal left Apple.
