Tim Cook named on TIME's 100 Most Influential people list

With Apple breaking financial and innovative barriers, the Tech giant's CEO - who had Steve Jobs' incredible legacy to maintain and possibly overcome - is setting his own legacy.

Apple CEO, Tim Cook.

Stepping out from under late Apple Co-founder Steve Jobs’ immense shadow was always going to be hard – for anyone. But not current Apple CEO Tim Cook, who has been named among TIME’s 100 Most Influential People.

With Apple recording incredible profitability margins over the last two years and maintaining its pioneering status in innovation and ingenuity, it is not hard to see why the Apple CEO has made it into this exclusive list of high achievers.

Cook’s unwavering support for individual rights to privacy, equality, LGBT right and constant advocacy for change through his words and actions are some of the qualities that sets him apart from the flock. His commitment to renewable energy also helps make our planet a little cleaner for us and for future generations.

Most importantly, he has shown that profitability and integrity can go together while he continually raises the bar for innovation with Apple constantly giving the world some of the most innovative products it has ever seen.

Tim Cook is a visionary of epic proportions and as such deserves to be celebrated for his contributions to today’s world.
