Intuit chairman Bill Campbell is retiring from Apple's (NASDAQ:AAPL) board, and will be replaced by BlackRock co-founder/director Sue Wagner.

Campbell, who once worked as Apple's VP or marketing, is the company's longest-serving director, having been on the board for 17 years.

The WSJ reported on July 7 Tim Cook has been "actively seeking new directors" for Apple's board. The paper added the 8-person board has 6 directors aged 63 or older (Campbell, 73, is one of them), and is "known for its loyalty" to Steve Jobs.
