Uno de los co-fundadores de la empresa Apple acaba de anunciar la renuncia de su posición como jefe ejecutivo principal.

Steve Jobs, cuya compañía es sinónima con reproductores de música (iPod), una marca popular de teléfonos móviles (iPhone), tabletas (iPad) y computadoras iMac en el mundo de dispositivos electrónicos, anunció su renuncia el día de hoy.

De parte de la junta de la empresa, Art Levinson dijo: “la extraordinaria visión y el liderazgo de Steve salvó a Apple y la guió hacia su posición como compañía mundial de tecnología más innovadora y valiosa. Steve ha realizado innumerables contribuciones para el éxito de Apple, y que ha atraído e inspirado a los empleados inmensamente creativos de Apple y al equipo ejecutivo de primera clase. En su nuevo papel como presidente de la junta, Steve continuará sirviendo a Apple con su visión única, creatividad e inspiración”.

Tim Cook ha sido nombradocomo el nuevo jefe ejecutivo y formará parte de la misma junta con Steve Jobs.

Actualización 2: Se piensa que la renuncia de Steve Jobs como jefe ejecutivo es debido a su salud. Desde comienzos de este año, Jobs había recibido una baja médica, mientras que Cook desempeñaba todas las operaciones diarias de él. Continuaba Jobs con su participación en las decisiones más primordiales de la empresa. En junio de 2009, Jobs había tenido un transplante de higado.

Con la renuncia de Jobs, parece que hoy ha llegado el final de una era para Apple.

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

Siempre dije que cuando llegara el día en que no pudiera cumplir con mis tareas y las expectativas que de mi se tienen como CEO de Apple, yo sería el primero en dejarles saber. Desafortunadamente, ese día llegó.

A través de este medio presento mi renuncia como jefe ejecutivo de Apple. Me gustaría seguir, si la Junta de Directores lo permite, como presidente de la Junta, director y empleado de Apple.

Mientras entra en funciones mi sucesor, recomiendo que Tim Cook sea el jefe ejecutivo de Apple.

Creo que los días más prometedores y brillantes Apple están por venir. Y me veo, en un futuro, contribuyendo al éxito de la empresa desde mi nueva función.

Muchos de mis grandes amigos los conocí trabajando en esta empresa. Así que agradezco a todos por todos los años que hemos laborado juntos.
