On August 24, 2011, Timothy Donald “Tim” Cook became CEO of Apple, Silicon Valley’s epicenter of sales revenue and profitability. Unsurprisingly Tim was born in Mobile, Alabama, USA.
After Steve Jobs passed away some media predicted the downfall of Apple. Contrary to expectations Tim boosted Apple’s business. Today we can say that a tech visionary passed away and a business visionary took control and implemented a new kind of openness and delegated authority.
Tim, keep on refining the company’s DNA.
