Proving all the critics wrong and going beyond expectations, Tim Cook has lived up to everyone’s expectations. According to CNN, Cook has made the company’s stocks climb by 40% and will soon perhaps reach to an all time high; It also made some record breaking launches like launch of iPhone 6 and Apple Pay services. CNN also mentions the excitement which has been built up around the launch of Apple Watch which is due out in 2015. The hype built around the wearable gadget will be a big win for the Apple CEO.

CNN cites that Cook has the toughest CEO job amongst all. Because after the death of Steve Jobs, he had to prove the cynics and the skeptics that Apple could still innovate. It mentions that Tim Cook has clearly proven all the naysayers wrong making him earn the victory!

It also respected his decision of publicly declaring his sexuality and his decision to buy Beats in 2013.
