Former Northrop Grumman CEO Joins Apple Board
Here’s a worthy addition to Apple’s board of directors: Ronald Sugar, former chairman and CEO of Northrop Grumman. “Ron is an engineer at heart, who then became a very successful business leader,” Apple CEO Steve Jobs said of Sugar, who will also serve as chairman of the company’s audit and finance committee. “In addition to having been the CEO of a high-tech Fortune 100 company, Ron has a Ph.D. in engineering and has been involved in the development of some very sophisticated technology.”
Sugar’s appointment grows Apple’s board back to seven members, following the death of Jerome York earlier this year.
