Al Gore and James Bell are retiring from Apple’s board of directors as Dr. Wanda Austin joins.

Gore has been on the board since 2003 while Bell has been a member since 2015. Both are leaving because “the board has a longstanding policy that directors generally may not stand for reelection after reaching age 75,” according to Apple’s press release.

Austin, the former president and CEO of The Aerospace Corporation, will join the company’s board.

Tim Cook:

Wanda has spent decades advancing technology on behalf of humanity, and we’re thrilled to welcome her to Apple’s board of directors. She’s an extraordinary leader, and her invaluable experience and expertise will support our mission of leaving the world better than we found it.
