Highlights of career: Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple, Retires.
Steve Jobs Steps Down as CEO.
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.
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.
Biggest company in the US? Most admired? Elegant? Innovative? And headed up by a headstrong, brilliant genius.

Update: Reuters. “Apple said Steve Jobs has been elected chairman and Tim Cook has been elected CEO.”
