Eddy Cue is one busy guy. Along with taking on extra duties at Apple as the Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services, Cue is joining the board of directors of luxury car maker Ferrari. The news was first spotted by 9to5 Mac.
In a press release from Ferrari, Cue commented on his appointment:
“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,” said Eddie Cue, commenting on his nomination to the board.
And Ferrari’s Chairman Luca di Montezemolo was happy to have Cue join the company’s board:
“I am delighted that Eddy Cue, one of the main driving forces behind Apple’s range of revolutionary products, has now joined our board. His huge experience in the dynamic, innovative world of the Internet will be of great assistance to us.”
Cue, who helped to create the iTunes Store, the App Store, the iBookstore, and iCloud, has definitely had a busy month. During last week’s executive shakeup at Apple, he was placed in charge of two troubled properties – Siri and the company’s own Maps app.
