Amelio replaces Spindler at Apple

Published on .

Apple Computer's reported new CEO, Gil Amelio, is likely to delegate marketing responsibilities, but he also will force discipline and focus into Apple marketing, a review of his management pattern suggests. Mr. Amelio resigned Feb. 2 as chairman-CEO of National Semiconductor amid reports he will replace Michael Spindler as Apple CEO.

The future of Apple's top marketing executive, Satjiv Chahil, is unclear.
