Jobs' email to Apple employees about his absence. Tim Cook will take controlTweet
Apple CEO, CEO Steve Jobs would take an from the company’s daily business because of a medical condition. Tim Cook, Apple’s chief operating officer, will take control of the company’s daily business. This es the email Jobs sent to all employees Apple.
At my request, the board of directors has granted me a medical leave of absence so I can focus on my health. I will continue as CEO and be involved in major strategic decisions for the company.
I have asked Tim Cook to be responsible for all of Apple’s day to day operations. I have great confidence that Tim and the rest of the executive management team will do a terrific job executing the exciting plans we have in place for 2011.
I love Apple so much and hope to be back as soon as I can. In the meantime, my family and I would deeply appreciate respect for our privacy.
Let’s hope this is nothing serious and Steve Jobs can resume his position at Apple soon.
