Corporate Functions

It takes exceptional people to run an extraordinary company.

Three Apple employees meet around a table in a conference room

When you join a company that never sits still, you won’t either. To meet the challenges of running a unique global business, you’ll help us innovate new ways of supporting our organisation and maintaining fiscal accountability to our investors. At Apple, this also means using our leadership position as a socially responsible corporate citizen to influence change in the world.

For Sheena, every day is an opportunity to succeed.

How do you define your role?

Officially, as a member of the Real Estate and Development team at Apple, I coordinate operations at our Beats campus in Los Angeles. But what I love is how much my role changes from day to day. From booking travel to working with Global Security, there’s always something new and exciting to do.

What influences your work?

My passion is fitness — in particular, competitive bodybuilding. After I won several competitions, my co-workers saw my progress and began reaching out to me to help them with their fitness lifestyle. I’m more than happy to share my knowledge and assist them with their overall health and wellness goals. I believe that when we feel good from the inside, it creates a more positive work environment for everyone.

How does this role differ from others you’ve had in the past?

I had the pleasure of being one of the first to join the Beats office in 2011, so it gives me great joy to know I’ve contributed to building this office’s culture in some way. It’s an honor to be part of a company that unites the worlds of both technology and entertainment into one.
