CNN Named Tim Cook ‘CEO Of The Year’

The rise in stock price and record-breaking product launches were amongst the reasons why CNN has named Tim Cook as “CEO of the Year” for 2014.

Apple is the apple of Wall Street’s eye again. And that’s why Tim Cook is our choice for best CEO of 2014.

The stock is up 40% this year and near an all-time high thanks to the launch of the latest iPhones and Apple Pay service as well as excitement about the Apple Watch due out in 2015.


In the list. Tim Cook sits in first place ahead some other high-profile CEOs, including John Chen of BlackBerry, Mary Barra of GM, and Meg Whitman of HP.

According to CNN, “Cook has arguably the toughest CEO job in America. He’s had to convince skeptics that Apple can still innovate after the death of Steve Jobs. He’s proven all the naysayers wrong.”
