Current CEO of Apple and friends of the late Steve Jobs, Tim Cook has had a remarkable life. A businessman, engineer and developer, Tim has worked at Apple since 1998. He graduated from Auburn University in 1982 with a degree in industrial engineering and then spent 12 years with computer company IBM.
After being approached by Steve Jobs in 1998, Tim didn’t take much persuading to join the company. Tim made a swift progression through the company and had numerous roles including Senior Vice President for worldwide operations, Lead Operations and Chief Executive. In 2011 Steve Jobs stepped down as company CEO due to poor health and Tim replaced him. Two weeks later Steve passed away and Tim’s business partnership with his friend was praised.
Tim’s running of the company has been praised by many people especially the way he has harmonised and stabilised the organisation following the unfortunate death of Steve Jobs. In 2012 he was named on Time magazine’s list of 100 most influential people in the world. Since he has taken over as CEO Tim has also increased the amount of money Apple donates to charity.
In 2015 Tim was named Fortune magazine’s leader of the year demonstrating how highly respected he is within the business world. He also sits on the Nike board of directors offering opinion and making decisions on issues within the company.
Able to engage with all audiences, Tim’s humorous and likeable personality coupled with his incredible knowledge of the corporate and business world makes him a wonderful after dinner speaker.
