Jony Ive, Apple’s head of product design, was given the ultimate operational power at Apple — ensuring that the design-centric company has a strong representative. Ive has been at Apple for 20 years, 15 of which he’s been the design leader. At the end of Jobs’ tenure as CEO, Ive was one of seven senior vice presidents at Apple to report directly to Jobs. Ive is the conceptual mind behind the iMac, titanium and aluminum PowerBook G4, G4 Cube, MacBook, unibody MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iPod, iPhone, and iPad.
