Apple announced on Tuesday morning Monica Lozano has been elected to its board of directors.
Lozano is the president and CEO of College Futures Foundation and was also formerly in the media, as editor and publisher of the La Opinión, the largest Spanish-language newspaper in the US, a role she had for 30 years. She eventually served as chairman and CEO of the newspaper’s parent company, ImpreMedia.
“I’ve always admired Apple’s commitment to the notion that technology, at its best, should empower all people to improve their lives and build a better world,” said Lozano. “I look forward to working with Tim, Art, and the other board members to help Apple carry those values forward and build on a rich and productive history.”
“Monica has been a true leader and trailblazer in business, media, and an ever-widening circle of philanthropic efforts to realize a more equitable future — in our schools and in the lives of all people,” said Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, in a statement. “Her values and breadth of experience will help Apple continue to grow, to innovate, and to be a force for good in the lives of our teams, customers, and communities.”
Currently, Lozano also serves on the board of Target and Bank of America, and previously served on the board of The Walt Disney Company.
