The 11 Most Important Apple Execs Now That Steve Jobs is Gone

After being on temporary medical leave since January, Steve Jobs resigned from his position as the chief executive officer of Apple late last week.

While the announcement knocked the company's stock down five percent in after hours trading on the day it was made, the reaction from investors could have been a lot worse.

There's never been a chief executive as interwoven with a brand as Steve Jobs has been with Apple, the company he co-founded with Steve Wozniak, over the past 17 years.

But, Apple is more than just Steve Jobs. The company is packed with talented executives that keep the company -- and will continue to keep the company -- moving one step ahead of its rivals.
