Apple CEO now a billionaire
Cook has been one of Job’s top right hand man from serving as SVP of worldwide operations to helping the company strike a couple of deals which would later make them a hardware powerhouse.
During his early reign as CEO, many questioned his ability to fill Job’s void. But he has gone far and beyond to prove them all wrong as he has brought the company to a near $2 trillion worth.
In 2019 Cook enjoyed a $3 million base salary along side a $7.6 million incentives pay. When you put all these together accompanied by other salary bonuses, it makes him one of the highest-paid CEOs in the US.
Although when compared with other top tech CEOs, Cook can only be described as a rising billionaire.
The tech industry has seem to produce billionaires as can be seen in the world’s three richest individuals who are all founders in tech. From Jeff Bezos being the top dog, to Bill Gates and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
