CUPERTINO, Calif. (AP) — Apple has named board member Arthur Levinson as its chairman.

He fills a vacancy left open when Apple co-founder Steve Jobs died last month.

Levinson, who is chairman of Genentech Inc., has been co-lead director on Apple Inc.’s board since 2005. He joined the board in 2000.

Robert Iger, president and CEO of The Walt Disney Co., was tapped as director.

The appointments were announced Tuesday.
