Wag­ner takes Coach seat

Mac Format - - APPLE WORLD -

Ap­ple’s long­est-serv­ing board mem­ber, Bill Camp­bell, has re­tired. Known as “The Coach” (be­cause he once coached foot­ball at Columbia Univer­sity), he was ap­pointed to the post by Steve Jobs 17 years ago. Susan L. Wag­ner, found­ing part­ner and di­rec­tor of Black­Rock, has joined the board.

“Over the past 17 years, it’s been ex­cit­ing to watch his­tory un­fold as Ap­ple emerged as the premier tech­nol­ogy company in the world,” Camp­bell said. Wag­ner co-founded as­set-man­age­ment company, Black­Rock, in 1988. Wel­com­ing her ap­point­ment, Ap­ple CEO Tim Cook noted her ex­pe­ri­ence in merg­ers and ac­qui­si­tions (as well as in de­vel­op­ing mar­kets) would be “ex­tremely valu­able” to the company.
