Apple's Head of Video Marketing Chris Van Amburg steps down

Apple TV+

Chris Van Amburg has announced his departure from Apple, telling fellow staff members that he'll "be rooting for Apple."

Van Amburg joined Apple in 2018 as the Head of Video Marketing. While working at Apple, he oversaw marketing for Apple TV+ series and films.

Van Amburg alerted his staff of his upcoming departure in a memo, seen by Deadline. Apple has not as of yet issued a statement or commented on the matter.

Good morning all,

I'm writing today to bid you all a farewell for now, but mostly to say how proud I am of each and every one of you. You came to Apple because you are builders. Innovators, ready to tackle a new challenge. We built this award-winning team together, and our accomplishments are vast.

Four years later, it is time for me to give back a bit to myself. Families are so important in life, and as ATV+ enters this next phase, I need to step away to dedicate more time to my personal one.

I will be rooting for you and Apple every chance I get and am so excited to watch all of you continue to grow.


Before joining up at Apple, Van Amburg worked as the SVP of Marketing at Sony Pictures for more than a decade.

Van Amburg's brother, Zach Van Amburg, joined up with Apple in 2017.
