CUPERTINO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Apple’s Board of Directors today announced that Steve Jobs has resigned as Chief Executive Officer, and the Board has named Tim Cook, previously Apple’s Chief Operating Officer, as the company’s new CEO.

“Steve’s extraordinary vision and leadership saved Apple and guided it to its position as the world’s most innovative and valuable technology company”

“Steve’s extraordinary vision and leadership saved Apple and guided it to its position as the world’s most innovative and valuable technology company,” said Art Levinson, Chairman of Genentech, on behalf of Apple’s Board. “Steve has made countless contributions to Apple’s success, and he has attracted and inspired Apple’s immensely creative employees and world class executive team. In his new role as Chairman of the Board, Steve will continue to serve Apple with his unique insights, creativity and inspiration.”

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

Στο Διοικητικό Συμβούλιο της Apple και στην Apple Κοινότητα:

Πάντα έλεγα ότι αν έρθει η μέρα που δεν θα μπορώ να αντεπεξέλθω στα δικαιώματα μου και στις προσδοκίες σαν Apple CEO, θα ήμουν ο πρώτος που θα σας το έλεγε. Δυστυχώς αυτή η μέρα έχει έρθει.

Εδώ δηλώνω ότι παραιτούμαι από CEO της Apple. Θα συνεχίσω να εξυπηρετώ την Apple, αν το διοικητικό συμβούλιο το κρίνει, ως Πρόεδρος του Διοικητικού Συμβουλίου, διευθυντής της Apple και των εργαζομένων.

Όσον αφορά τον διάδοχο που μου ταιριάζει, προτείνω τον επόμενο που υπάρχει στο σχέδιο διαδοχής και ονομάζω τον Tim Cook CEO της Apple.

Πιστεύω πως οι πιο καλές και καινοτόμες ημέρες της Apple τώρα θα έρθουν. Και ανυπομονώ να παρακολουθήσω και να συμβάλω σε αυτή την επιτυχία με τον νέο μου ρόλο.

Έχω κάνει τους καλύτερους φίλους της ζωής μου στην  Apple, και σας ευχαριστώ όλους για όλα αυτά τα χρόνια που είχα την δυνατότητα να εργαστώ κοντά σας.

Steve
