Steve Jobs neemt ontslag als CEO van Apple, Tim Cook benoemd als opvolger

Apple heeft zojuist officieel bevestigd dat Steve Jobs ontslag neemt als CEO van Apple. Apple's Board of Directors heeft inmiddels Tim Cook, nu COO, tot de nieuwe CEO van het bedrijf benoemd. Steve Jobs neemt plaats in de Board en is tevens per direct benoemd tot "Chairman of the Board".

Steve Jobs schrijft in zijn ontslagbrief "I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all for the many years of being able to work alongside you". De volledige tekst van de brief is hieronder te lezen.

To the Apple Board of Directors and the Apple Community:

I have always said if there ever came a day when I could no longer meet my duties and expectations as Apple's CEO, I would be the first to let you know. Unfortunately, that day has come.

I hereby resign as CEO of Apple. I would like to serve, if the Board sees fit, as Chairman of the Board, director and Apple employee.

As far as my successor goes, I strongly recommend that we execute our succession plan and name Tim Cook as CEO of Apple.

I believe Apple's brightest and most innovative days are ahead of it. And I look forward to watching and contributing to its success in a new role.

I have made some of the best friends of my life at Apple, and I thank you all for the many years of being able to work alongside you.

Steve
