In a press release, the tech giant said that Lozano brings a broad range of leadership experience in the public and private sectors and called her a champion for equity, opportunity, and representation.
CEO Tim Cook said Lozano’s “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.”
Lozano is currently the President and CEO of College Futures Foundation, where she works in partnership with organizations and leaders to ensure that California’s low-income students and students of color should have equitable access to bachelor’s degrees and a better life.
Before she joined College Futures Foundation in 2017, Lozano spent 30 years as editor and publisher of La Opinión, the most-read Spanish-language newspaper in the US. She also served as Chairman and CEO of ImpreMedia, La Opinión’s parent company. Lozano holds positions on both Target and Bank of America’s board of directors.
Apple Chairman Arthur Levinson said, “Monica has been a pioneer in every organization fortunate enough to benefit from her vision and expertise.” He went on to say, “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.”
“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.”
