It’s no surprise Apple has adopted Monica Lozano, CEO of College Futures Foundation, to its board of directors on Tuesday.

“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.”

Over the years she attained a promising record of leadership roles.

Lozano has played a reputable part working on the boards of corporations like Target, Bank of America and The Walt Disney CO. Previously she gained experience as an editor and publisher for La Opinion. The Los Angeles bound paper is the largest Spanish-language paper cultivated in the U.S. As former chairman and CEO of the paper’s affiliated company, ImpreMedia, Lozano could be seen as Apples new force to be reckoned with.

“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. “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.”

“Monica has been a pioneer in every organization fortunate enough to benefit from her vision and expertise,” said Arthur Levinson, Apple’s chairman. “After a thorough and fruitful search, I couldn’t be more confident in the positive impact Monica will have on our board and Apple as a whole.”

“Lozano brings with her a broad range of leadership experience in the public and private sectors, as well as a long and storied track record as a champion for equity, opportunity, and representation,” said Apple.  

Apple ended the day trading at $126.60 per share and and is considered a stock to watch in 2021 with new innovations coming from the company.
