American Time magazine published an annual ranking of the 100 most influential, in the opinion of the editorial office, politicians, businessmen, cultural and public figures. It included Apple CEO Tim cook and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The list is divided into five categories: “pioneers”, it mainly included innovators from various fields; “the titans”, which unites mostly businessmen; the “leaders”, including the heads of state and other key policies; and “artists” and “icons”, mostly represented by cultural figures and persons to be awarded the prestigious awards.
Tim cook has entered the category of “Titans”. A brief sketch of him was written by CEO of Disney and a member of the Board of Directors Apple Bob iger: “Apple makes elegant and innovative products that change our world, our ways of communicating and communications with each other, how we think, work and act. For further success the company needs a leader of great courage and character, aimed at perfection, a man of high ethical standards, challenging the status quo and encourage key questions of life about who we are for culture and society. Tim cook is exactly the kind of leader”.
