Apple Resignation Letter, Steve Jobs

It has taken less than 24 hours to remove Steve Jobs from Apple CEO to his new position of Chairman of the Board, Director and Apple employee. Steve's health has been deteriorating for the past few years, requiring a couple leave of absences to be taken. Steve cofounded Apple in 1976 along with Steve Wozniak...


Here is Steve Jobs resignation letter to the Apple Board of Directors

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
