On Tuesday, during Apple’s annual meeting, CEO Tim Cook once again lifted a theme of succession, heading to serve conjecture about who will lead a large record association next.
Cook, who became CEO in 2011, followed Steve Jobs; a position is one of a many visible, and powerful, in business. There’s no pointer that Cook, who will spin 58 after this year, is about to step down.
• That creates guessing during a inheritor quite difficult: That chairman competence not even work during Barron’s Next 50 member Apple yet. (Though, given Cook has pronounced his pursuit is “to ready as many people as we can to be CEO,” it’s maybe protected to assume an inner choice. Here’s a outline of Apple’s tip managers.)
• Cook has forsaken hints about a kind of people from that he would cite a association pick—at times, by deliberating a reasons people left Apple. One former sell personality “didn’t fit here culturally,” a past program executive wasn’t “an A-plus during collaboration.”
• Names that have circulated newly embody Angela Ahrendts, Apple’s comparison clamp boss of retail, who has called “future CEO” rumors “fake news,” as BuzzFeed reported in an Oct profile; Craig Federighi, Apple’s comparison clamp boss for program engineering, who has been described as a “perfect frontman” for a company; and Jeff Williams, Apple’s COO, who Cook called “hands-down a best operations executive I’ve ever worked with.” Other similarities to Cook were remarkable in a 2015 Yahoo story.
