Former Apple retail boss Angela Ahrendts is joining Airbnb's board, the company announced Thursday.
Ahrendts had been one of the highest-paid employees at Apple with a total compensation of $26.5 million in 2018, according to Apple's proxy statement from Jan. 8, 2019. During that same year, CEO Tim Cook made $15.7 million in total compensation that year, according to the filing.
At Apple, Ahrendts used the company's physical stores to attract customers and develop the brand through in-store programs like "Today at Apple." In the announcement, Airbnb said her work around "building community among customers" would be an asset to the board.
Ahrendts is now Airbnb's third independent, non-affiliated board member, the company said. She joins former American Express CEO Ken Chenault and former Pixar CFO Ann Mather as an independent board member.
