O schimbare importanta in consiliul de administratie al companiei Apple a fost efectuata recent si anuntata de compania americana in cursul noptii trecute. Printr-un comunicat de presa emis ieri, compania cu sediul in Cupertino isi anunta investitorii si pe toti cei interesati ca Susan (Sue) Wagner, membru fondator si direcyor al BlackRock, s-a alaturat consiliului de administratie al Apple. BlackRock detine 2,82 procente din Apple si este o binecunoscuta corporatie de admonistrare a investitiilor fondata in anul 1988.

Wagner il va inlocui pe Bill Campbell, care a fost in ultimii 17 ani membru al consiliului de administratie Apple. Ca urmare a acestui anunt, Bill Campbell a vorbit, intr-un interviu acordat Fortune, despre cei 17 ani in care a servit compania Apple si cei peste 30 de ani de cand colaboreaza cu ea ca si director de marketing. In cadrul interviului el a vorbit despre cateva intamplari legate de munca alaturi de compania Apple, prietenia cu Steve Jobs si a laudat noua conducere a companiei la carmele careia se afla de trei ani Tim Cook. Despre actualul director general al Apple ne spune ca a facut o munca grozava, ajutand compania din Cupertino sa creasca simtitor.

Noua membra a consiliului de administratie Apple, care il va inlocui pe Bill Campbel, Susan Wagner a fost recunoscuta recent ca fiind una dintre cele 50 Cele mai Puternice Femei in Afaceri de catre celebra revista Fortune. Avand o vsata experienta, mai ales in M&A si construind afaceri globale atat pe pietele dezvoltate, cat si pe cele aflate in curs de dezvoltare, Wagner va fi o persoana extrem de importanta pentru Apple, in opinia lui Tim Cook. Presedintele Apple, Art Levision, sustine in comunicatul de presa al Apple ca a fost efectuate cautari exhaustive pana cand a fost gasita persoana potrivita in noul rol de membru al consiliului de administratie, laudand-o si el pe doamna Wagner.

Se zvonea luna trecuta ca Tim Cook cauta sa aduca in consiliul de administratie al Apple noi membri, intrucat o parte dintre actualele persoane care ocupa functii aici au varsta de peste 63 de ani, ultima decada petrecand-o la compania din Cupertino. Tim Cook, de fapt, a facut, de la instalarea in functia de director general, numeroase schimbari, reusite, mai ales in echipa administrativa, aducand la Apple persoane cu o vasta experienta in diferite domenii. De asemenea, el a inceput sa angajeze femei in rolurile de conducere, mai ales ca Apple nu o data a fost criticata pentru faptul ca, desi lupta pentru egalitate, in echipa de conducere nu se gasesc prea multe reprezentante ale sexului frumos. Wagner este cea de-a doua persoana din consiuliul de administratie al Apple, Andrea Jung fiind prima (din 2008).


Sue Wagner Joins Apple’s Board of Directors

Bill Campbell Retiring After 17 Years of Service

CUPERTINO, California—July 17, 2014—Apple® today announced that Susan L. Wagner, founding partner and director of BlackRock, has been elected to Apple’s board of directors. Bill Campbell, the board’s longest-serving member, is retiring after 17 years of service.
Wagner co-founded BlackRock in 1988 and helped it become one of the world’s most successful asset-management companies, holding a range of leadership positions including vice chairman until mid-2012. She continues to serve on the boards of BlackRock and DSP BlackRock (India), as well as Swiss Re, Wellesley College and Hackley School.
“Sue is a pioneer in the financial industry and we are excited to welcome her to Apple’s board of directors,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO. “We believe her strong experience, especially in M&A and building a global business across both developed and emerging markets, will be extremely valuable as Apple continues to grow around the world.”
“We conducted an exhaustive search for someone who would further strengthen our board’s breadth of talent and background, and we are delighted to have identified such an outstanding individual,” said Art Levinson, Apple’s chairman. “I’m confident that Sue is going to make an important and positive impact on our company.”
“I have always admired Apple for its innovative products and dynamic leadership team, and I’m honored to be joining their board,” said Wagner. “I have tremendous respect for Tim, Art and the other board members, and I look forward to working with them.”
Wagner graduated with honors from Wellesley College with a BA in English and Economics, and earned an MBA in Finance from the University of Chicago. She has been recognized as one of Fortune Magazine’s 50 Most Powerful Women in Business and honored by the National Council for Research on Women. At BlackRock, she championed and continues to support the Women’s Initiative Network, designed to foster the full potential of women within the company.
Bill Campbell’s relationship with Apple dates back to 1983, when he joined the company as vice president of Marketing. Next to Apple co-founders Steve Jobs and Mike Markkula, Campbell is the longest-serving board member in the company’s history.
“Bill’s contributions to Apple are immeasurable and we owe him a huge debt of gratitude. On behalf of the board and the entire company, I want to thank him for being a leader, a mentor and a friend,” said Cook. “When Bill joined Apple’s board, the company was on the brink of collapse. He not only helped Apple survive, but he’s led us to a level of success that was simply unimaginable back in 1997.”
“Over the past 17 years, it’s been exciting to watch history unfold as Apple emerged as the premier technology company in the world. Working with Steve and Tim has been a joy,” said Campbell. “The company today is in the best shape that I have seen it, and Tim’s leadership of his strong team will allow Apple to continue to be great going forward.”
Apple designs Macs, along with OS X, iLife, iWork and professional software. Apple leads the digital music revolution with its iPods and iTunes online store. Apple has reinvented the mobile phone with its revolutionary iPhone and App Store, and is defining the future of mobile media and computing devices with iPad.
