|Tim Cook, CEO of Apple Inc, ( Appointed in August )|
The keynote event for the release of the iPhone 5 is the perfect time for Apple's new CEO, Tim Cook, to prove himself as a worthy successor to what is no less than Steve Job's throne.
At the age of 50, the new CEO of the globally recognized multibillion dollar company has had more than 13 years of work experience with Apple having joined in March of 1998, in addition to his time spent as Vice President of Corporate Materials at Compaq.
But the real question lies in whether or not he is a suitable CEO for the company. Lets face facts. I trust Steve Jobs judgement. But the truth of the matter is that Steve Jobs' judgement is not what will guide the company anymore. That isn't to say that I don't have faith in Tim Cook. After all, the man has served in Apple for several years being the Chief Operating Officer for many and the temporary CEO for a while too. Also working in the company for so many years you'd expect him to have learned of its ways and picked up a few things from Steve Jobs. So concluding this tiresome and controversial ( at least to my mind ) article, I believe that he is the best possible replacement for Steve Jobs but can he live up to his standards ? Only time will tell and the first milestone to his success / failure as a CEO will be tomorrow on October 4th at 10:00 a.m Pacific Time.
