    Every SVP with the exception of Jony Ive is listed as an executive officer of the company. I've always wondered why that is. According to SEC rules an officer is defined as:

    Certainly an argument can be made that Ive is in charge of a principle function and has a policymaking role at the company. How can Apple justify not listing him as an officer (and thus not having to disclose his salary or stock option grants)?

    Maybe though I couldn't find anything on SEC website. I thought maybe it was due to the small number of employees reporting to him but that doesn't really have anything to do with his influence at the company.

    It could have to do with his position in design versus policy making for Apple. If I remember correctly, Steve Wozniak also wanted nothing to do with governing of Apple but wanted to be immersed in design.
