Posted on Wednesday, August 24th, 2011 in Uncategorized by Nick

Steve Jobs, the magic man from Apple, is officially calling it quits as he resigned today.

“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.


Tim Cook, the current COO, will replace Jobs as CEO. Jobs though has been elected as Chairman of the Board and will remain with the company in that capacity.
