The day has come for a person who always started building than just dreaming, the person who was always known for his creativity and innovation. Yeah, you’re right I’m talking about the great Steve Jobs who began building the Apple empire since April 1,1976. Unfortunately, Jobs won’t be serving Apple as CEO any longer as he decides to resign from his post which is equally a shocker as well as unexpected.
The Wall Street Journal published a letter from Steve Jobs announcing his resignation:
PRESS RELEASE: Letter from Steve Jobs
August 24, 2011–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.
Although he has left Apple, he has instilled his watermarks in all the hearts of Apple fans which includes myself. So I have collected some of the best moments of Steve Jobs after he started Apple Inc.
