Steve Jobs quitte Apple jusqu’en Juin…

15 01 2009

… mais pas la gestion, il restera en contact avec ses collaborateurs.

Dans un mail envoyé à ses collaborateurs, Steve Jobs, le co-fondateur et patron d’Apple , déclare quitter pour une durée de 6 mois pour raisons de santé qui seraient “plus complexe que ce qu’il pensait à l’origine”.

C’est  Phil Schiller, qui avait déjà remplacer l’i-gourou au dernier, qui co-dirigera avec  Tim Cook la marque à la pomme.

Revient nous vite, Steve !

J’ai reussis à trouver le mail envoyé à ses collaborateurs :


I am sure all of you saw my letter last week sharing something very personal with the Apple community. Unfortunately, the curiosity over my personal health continues to be a distraction not only for me and my family, but everyone else at Apple as well. In addition, during the past week I have learned that my health-related issues are more complex than I originally thought.

In order to take myself out of the limelight and focus on my health, and to allow everyone at Apple to focus on delivering extraordinary products, I have decided to take a medical leave of absence until the end of June.

I have asked Tim Cook to be responsible for Apple’s day to day operations, and I know he and the rest of the executive management team will do a great job. As CEO, I plan to remain involved in major strategic decisions while I am out. Our board of directors fully supports this plan.

I look forward to seeing all of you this summer.
