Apple on Friday announced that Daniel Cooperman has been appointed the company’s senior vice president, general counsel and secretary, reporting to CEO Steve Jobs. He’ll start on Nov. 1.
Cooperman replaces Donald J. Rosenberg, who has served as Apple’s senior vice president, general counsel and secretary for the past ten months. Rosenberg is taking an Executive Vice President position at telecommunications company Qualcomm.
Rosenberg came to Apple in November, 2006 from IBM, filling the vacancy left by Nancy Heinen, who left the preceding May. Heinen is
being sued by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in connection with a stock options backdating scheme. Recently the SEC
subpoenaed Steve Jobs to testify in the case.
Cooperman comes to Apple from Oracle, where he worked as senior vice president, general counsel and secretary.
