Steve Jobs resigned as CEO of Apple

A letter from Steve Jobs released on Wednesday evening:

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.


So there goes the era of Steve Jobs. However, the good news is, Jobs has been elected as Chairman of the Board and will still remain with the company.

Followed by Steve Jobs’s recommendation, Tim Cook (Apple’s COO) will replace Steve Jobs as the new CEO.

It is interesting to see how Apple continues its journey down the road with a new CEO.
