Like the Apple co-founder and former CEO Steve Jobs, the current Apple CEO Tim Cook has also joined the TIME 100, a list published each year by Time Magazine consisting of world’s 100 most influential people. The list consists of people who inspire us, entertain us, challenge us and change our world, as described by Time Magazine. Other big names this year include Hillary Clinton, Walter Isaacson, Adele, Rihanna and Salman Khan. Since each entry on the list includes a description written by someone close to him or her, Tim Cook was described by Al Gore, the former U.S. Vice President and Apple board member.
Al Gore says:
It is difficult to imagine a harder challenge than following the legendary Steve Jobs as CEO of Apple. Yet Tim Cook, a soft-spoken, genuinely humble and quietly intense son of an Alabama shipyard worker and a homemaker, hasn’t missed a single beat.
Fiercely protective of Jobs’ legacy and deeply immersed in Apple’s culture, Cook, 51, has already led the world’s most valuable and innovative company to new heights while implementing major policy changes smoothly and brilliantly.
