Tim Cook Again Among TIME’s 100 Most Influential People
This year Tim Cook’s segment was penned by Bob Iger, chairman and CEO of Walt Disney Co., and he praises Cook’s commitment to “doing the right thing, in the right way”. As Iger emphasizes, Cook has lead Apple to new heights and continues to build a brand that is respected across the globe for its values.
Apple is known for elegant, innovative products that change the world by transforming how we connect, create and communicate, as well as how we work, think and act. Its continued success requires a leader of great courage and character who demands excellence, upholds the highest ethical standards and routinely challenges the status quo, including encouraging vital conversations about who we are as a culture and a community.
Tim Cook is that kind of leader.
Behind his soft-spoken demeanor and Southern manners is a focused fearlessness that comes from deep personal conviction. Tim is committed to doing the right thing, in the right way, at the right time and for the right reasons. As CEO, he’s led Apple to new heights, and he continues to build a global brand that is universally recognized as an industry leader and widely respected for its values.
Tim Cook’s name appears in the Titans segment, alongside Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg, Stephen Curry, Eli Broad, Kathleen Kennedy, Sundar Pichai, Wang Jianlin, Pope Francis, Dwayne Johnson, and others.
