Apple issues revised executive org chart – Tim Cook is now the man

Thu, Aug 25, 2011


Following Steve Jobs’ resignation, Apple today posted a revised executive org chart with Tim Cook now occupying the CEO spot. It’s certainly weird not to see Jobs’ mug there after all these years.

Cook’s bio reads:

Tim Cook is the CEO of Apple and serves on its Board of Directors.

Before being named CEO in August 2011, Tim was Apple’s Chief Operating Officer and was responsible for all of the company’s worldwide sales and operations, including end-to-end management of Apple’s supply chain, sales activities, and service and support in all markets and countries. He also headed Apple’s Macintosh division and played a key role in the continued development of strategic reseller and supplier relationships, ensuring flexibility in response to an increasingly demanding marketplace.

With all of the hulabaloo circling Cook’s ascension to CEO, there has been scant discussion regarding who will take over Cook’s former role as COO. The org chart below lists Jeff Williams as Apple’s Senior VP of Operations and it stands to reason he’ll fill Cook’s shoes as Apple’s COO.

Notably, Ron Johnson still appears on the chart as he’s not scheduled to leave the company until November. Apple is currently looking for his replacement and went so far as to hire the prominent global search firm of Egon Zehnder International to help find its new retail guru.

Apple also updated its list of Board of Directors with Jobs as Chairman of the Board.
