User Rating:  / 0

Late co-founder and CEO of Apple, Steve Jobs resigned from his position in the company in August 2011. He had issued a resignation letter, telling the Board of Directors that

he would remain as the Chairman of the Board and will appoint Tim Cook to become the new CEO. The board approved Jobs’ request and made the resignation effective right away. Here we are showing the resination letter in his words.

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.
