AN EXODUS AT APPLE
A YEAR AGO, GILBERT Amelio was hired to bring stability to Apple Computer. Some stability. With his recovery plan in shambles, management turmoil at Apple is reaching fever pitch. Among those on the way out: Mac unit chief G. Fred Forsyth, worldwide sales boss John Floisand, who was promoted just last April with a $500,000-a-year contract, and top marketeer Satjiv Chahil. Technologist Ellen Hancock, and chief operating officer Marco Landi now have diminished roles and also may go. Meanwhile, Vice-President Heidi Roizen, who was hired to help Apple keep software developers in the Mac camp, resigned on Feb. 10.
