Apple has promoted its Vice President for Internet Services, Eddy Cue, to Senior Vice President for Internet Software and Services. The promotion represents the first reorganization of Apple's leadership under Tim Cook's command.
Cook distributed an email earlier today, first obtained by 9to5Mac, that announced Cue's promotion to the company:
It is my pleasure to announce the promotion of Eddy Cue to Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services. Eddy will report to me and will serve on Apple's executive management team.
Eddy oversees Apple's industry-leading content stores including the iTunes Store, the revolutionary App Store and the iBookstore, as well as iAd and Apple's innovative iCloud services. He is a 22-year Apple veteran and leads a large organization of amazing people. He played a major role in creating the Apple online store in 1998, the iTunes Music Store in 2003 and the App Store in 2008.
Apple is a company and culture unlike any other in the world and leaders like Eddy get that. Apple is in their blood. Eddy and the entire executive management team are dedicated to making the best products in the world that delight our customers and make our employees incredibly proud of what they do.
Please join me in congratulating Eddy on this significant and well-deserved promotion. I have worked with Eddy for many years and look forward to working with him even closer in the future.
As a Senior Vice President, Apple has given Cue his own biography page, which lists his new duties at Apple. Among them, Cue will oversee the iTunes Store, the App Store, the iBookstore, Apple's iCloud services and the iAd advertising platform. Good luck, Eddy!
