Apple's Eddy Cue joins the Ferrari board of directors

Eddy Cue, Apple's senior vice president of internet software and services, has joined the board of directors of Italian hypercar maker, Ferrari. In the press release announcing Ferrari's financial results of the first nine months of 2012, they also announced the appointment. Cue is quoted in the release with the following statement:

“I am pleased and proud to become a member of the board. I have personally dreamed of owning a Ferrari since I was 8 years old and have been lucky to be an owner for the past 5 years. I continue to be awed by the world-class design and engineering that only Ferrari can do."

The appointment comes as Cue has taken on increased responsibilities in his role as head of internet software and services at Apple, having iOS 6 Maps and Siri placed under his supervision.

What if anything this means for Cue's time commitments, and Apple and Ferrari products is unknown. Who knows, maybe we'll see an F70 with built-in iTunes Match...?

  • Seems like a great bit of board-level professional development; getting outside perspectives, seeing how another group of world-leading - but very different - design-obsessives do things, and also adding his own valuable experience and approach to Ferrari's board.
