Apple’s Jonathan Ive named Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire

“Jonathan Ive, the designer of Apple Computer Inc.’s wildly popular iPod music player and iMac computer, on Friday was named a Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE) by Queen Elizabeth II,” The San Francisco Chronicle reports.

“London-born Ive, 38, is senior vice president of design at the Cupertino computer company, where he has worked since 1992. The CBE award was granted Friday by the queen in her annual New Year’s Honors,” The Chronicle reports. “The commander’s rank is the third-most-senior rank in the order, which was created by King George V in 1917. It is awarded to individuals in recognition of the contribution and service to British interests worldwide. In 2003, Ive was named designer of the year by the Design Museum in London. He is responsible for the look and feel of all Apple hardware products.”

  1. Jobs and Ive’s are obviously the backbone of Apple’s recent success.. I fear about what should happen to the company if either of them ever parted ways for any reason be it financial or death…
