Steve Jobs, dosedanji Apple CEO in “krivec” da je postal Apple v zadnjem desetletju to kar je – da si sveta brez iNaprav ne znamo več predstavljati, je včeraj obvestil upravni odbor da odstopa kot CEO. Na položaju ga bo zamenjal Tim Cook, Steve Jobs pa bo postal predsednik upravnega odbora.
Pred Timom je definitivno težka naloga, saj to kar je Steve naredil v zadnjih letih, bo težko preseči, oz. ponoviti. Prav tako pa bo zanimiv odziv borze na njegov odstop.
In kaj je napisal Steve Jobs (vir):
Letter from Steve Jobs
August 24, 2011–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.
