Cook, who was chief operating officer at Apple , also joins the board in place that was open since the departure of former Google chief executive Eric Schmidt. Schmidt left the council due to the launch of the Android operating system, which placed the two companies, Apple and Google, the first time as direct competitors in a sector of the technology market.

Jobs, 56, founder of the company and returned to run Apple in 1997 after leaving the company in 1985, underwent surgery to remove a malignant tumor in the pancreas in August 2004. In the first half of 2009 and in January 2011, the businessman took sick leave for health care. On both occasions, Cook was in command of the company that created the iPhone and iPad.
With 50-year-old Cook, who since 2005 has held the post of Chief Operating Officer (COO) joined Apple in 1998 as vice president of operations. He previously worked at Compaq and IBM, where he served for 12 years.
According to Apple, Cook is responsible for sales and the company’s worldwide operations, including supply chain management products, sales activities and customer support and service in various markets and countries.
