Andrea Jung Appointed to Apple’s Board of Directors

Andrea Jung has been appointed to Apple’s Board of Directors, bringing her extensive experience as the current chairman and CEO of Avon. A Princeton University alumna, Jung also holds positions on the General Electric Company’s board of directors and the board of trustees at New York Presbyterian Hospital.

“We are excited to see Andrea bring her strong leadership and marketing skills to Apple’s board,” commented Steve Jobs. “Her insights and experience are invaluable.”

Jung represents the eighth addition to Apple’s board, following the previous appointment of Eric Schmidt, CEO of Google.

This move comes at a time when Apple has faced criticism for a perceived lack of diversity within its senior ranks. The current board members include:

  1. Bill Campbell (Chairman and former CEO, Intuit Corp.)

  2. Millard Drexler (Chairman and CEO, J. Crew)

  3. Albert Gore Jr. (Former Vice President of the United States)
