What we thought it would be a pretty normal week in the world of Apple is becoming a very important week. Following the announcement of CarPlay, now have a key movement in the directive: the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Apple Peter Oppenheimer is removed After 18 years of work in the company.
Will do so at the end of September, in a smooth transition that will last a few months and that will culminate with Luca Maestri (so far the VP Finance) appointed as the new CFO. Oppenheimer wanted to make it clear in the press release that “love Apple”, but that “is the time to take some time” for him and his family.
Oppenheimer will use to fulfill some dreams: live on the central coast of California and end up taking off the pilot license
Tim Cook has dedicated a few words for Oppenheimer:
Peter has been our CFO during a decade in which our annual income went from 8,000 to 171.000 million and our global influence has expanded dramatically. Your guide, leadership and experience have been instrumental to the success of Apple, not only as our CFO but also in many areas related to finances as he was ordering of additional activities to offer its assistance throughout the company. Slat raises contributions and integrity as our CFO to the CFOs of all companies.
Peter is also a good friend with whom I always knew that I could count on him. Although I am sad to see it go, I am happy knowing that takes awhile for him and his family. As we were waiting for all that we know, it has created a succession plan to ensure there is no blip on Apple.
As for Luca, the next CFO, Tim has also reviews:
Luca has more than 25 years of experience in the field of financial management, and I am confident that it will be a great CFO at Apple. When we were hiring Corporate Auditors met Luca and knew that it was going to be the successor of Peter. His contributions to Apple have already been significant during the time it takes between us and has quickly gained respect among classmates throughout the entire company.
However, the withdrawal of Apple and the desire to be with his family do not imply a total retirement to Oppenheimer. The Executive It has recently entered the Board of Directors of Goldman Sachs, even if we assume that the workload of the post will not be far it involving take care of all the finances of Apple.
Anyway, I will miss Oppenheimer. It is his voice which I always hear in the financial results press conferences that Apple held every three months, and his work ranges from the sales of the iPod until well into the revolution of the iPhone and the iPad. You can hear him last in the two upcoming results press conferences, that should take place at the end of April and at the end of July.
