Steve Jobs, one of the founders of Apple and Pixar, has resigned as Chief Executive Officer of Apple. Do you think this decision will impact the wave of success Apple has ensued? The replacement CEO definitely has big shoes to fill and hopefully can follow in the shadow of his predecessor.
It is not feasible to believe the acting CEO Tim Cook will emulate Jobs to a tee, but his performance expectations will remain high. Jobs is not completely departing from Apple instead he will act as Chairman to the Board. Earlier this year Steve Jobs took a medical leave for the second time since 2009; he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2003.
