Apple General Counsel Bruce Sewell Joins Vail Ski Resort Board

Bruce Sewell Vail Board Apple

Bruce Sewell, Apple’s General Counsel since 2009, has joined the board of luxury ski resort firm Vail Resorts, according to a press release issued Monday. The appointment is suitable for the Apple executive, as the press release states that he is a “lifelong skier” who “toured the country skiing in Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, and worked as a professional ski patroller” in New York between college and law school.

“We are thrilled to have someone of Bruce’s caliber and extensive experience join our board,” Rob Katz, chairman and chief executive officer of Vail Resorts said in the press release. “Bruce brings with him an incredible background in managing complex issues in companies growing around the globe with high levels of consumer passion and incredible track records of creativity and innovation.”

Prior to joining Apple in September 2009, Mr. Sewell was general counsel for Intel, as well as its senior vice president for legal and government affairs. At Apple, he replaced Daniel Cooperman, who joined the company in 2007.

“We are thrilled to have Bruce join our executive team, and wish Dan a very happy retirement,” Apple’s late CEO, Steve Jobs, said at the time.

As part of his duties at Vail, Mr. Sewell will also serve on the audit committee for the board.

Vail, founded in 1997, operates resorts in Colorado, Lake Tahoe, Minnesota, Michigan, and Wyoming. The company is headquartered in Broomfield, Colorado.
