Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Inc announced today that he is going to take a medical leave of absence. The American Business Magnet and Inventor earlier had several battles with his health when he had pancreatic cancer and liver transplant. In an email sent by Jobs to his employees, he says:
At my request, the board of directors has granted me a medical leave of absence so I can focus on my health. I will continue as CEO and be involved in major strategic decisions for the company.
I have asked Tim Cook to be responsible for all of Apple’s day to day operations. I have great confidence that Tim and the rest of the executive management team will do a terrific job executing the exciting plans we have in place for 2011.
I love Apple so much and hope to be back as soon as I can. In the meantime, my family and I would deeply appreciate respect for our privacy.
Steve Jobs, 55, took a similar leave back in 2009, related to his liver transplant. He earlier had undergone treatment on pancreatic cancer and now it seems like there is something happening with his health.
Let us hope that Jobs, as innovative and creative as he is, will have the strength and stamina to win the battle for his health.
