Eddy Cue becomes Apple's senior VP of Internet Software

updated 10:35 am EDT, Thu September 1, 2011

'Promotion' from role in charge of iTunes

Eddy Cue has been promoted to the position of Senior VP of Internet Software and Services at Apple, an email memo from CEO Tim Cook reveals. "Eddy will report to me and will serve on Apple's executive management team," the message elaborates. Cook notes that Cue has been with Apple 22 years, and most recently was the head of Apple's iTunes efforts; he is currently overseeing the iTunes Store, the App Store and the iBookstore, as well as iAd and iCloud.

"Apple is a company and culture unlike any other in the world and leaders like Eddy get that," Cook comments. "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."

The promotion could potentially be the start of a minor management shakeup at Apple. Cook himself was only recently promoted to CEO after the resignation of Steve Jobs last week. As such, he may want to rearrange the Apple hierarchy to suit his own needs and demands.
