Apple Adds Disney, Genentech Execs to Board

Apple has found a man to try and help fill Steve Jobs shoes in its board room.

The Cupertino-based company announced Tuesday that current Apple board member Arthur D. Levinson has been named non-executive chairman of Apple’s board.

He has served on Apple’s board since 2000.

Apple also announced that Disney CEO Bob Iger will also be joining and serving on the board’s audit committee.

Jobs also served on Disney's board and was one of the company's largest shareholders before he passed away in October.

New Apple CEO Tim Cook made the announcement in a press release on the company's corporate site.

"Apple is always focused on out-innovating itself through the delivery of truly innovative products that simplify and improve our lives, and that is something I am very proud to be a part of," Cook said.

Levinson is also the chairman of Genentech and a member of the Roche Board of Directors.
