Carney hasn’t made up his mind, according to the person, who asked not to be named because the discussions are private and no agreement has been reached.
Carney declined to specify whether he’s talking to Apple or any other specific company. “I’m talking to a lot of different people about a variety of potential opportunities,” he said in an e-mail today.
Apple has been seeking a successor to Katie Cotton, the company’s longtime vice president for worldwide communications who announced her departure in May. Carney, 49, would give the maker of the iPhone a high-profile public face.
