Tim Cook, revered CEO of Apple, has taken out top spot in CNN Money’s list of the best CEO’s in 2014.

 

<Applause>

 

The accolade is in recognition of his many successes this year, including proving wrong all the critics who thought he couldn’t live up to the leadership voracity or innovative style of Steve Jobs, his insistence of and steps toward creating a equal workplace, the release of successful new products and successful new product lines in the Apple Watch and Apple Pay, AND, very importantly for CNN (and investors), Apple’s pretty incredible 40% stock climb this year.

 

Phewf.  That’s some 2014.

 

Cook can put this award right next to the other one’s he’s collected this year, such as the Financial Times ‘ Person of The Year’, being a finalist for Time Magazine’s Person of the Year, and his Lifetime Achievement Award from Auburn University, where he earned his bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering.

 

You can see the other finalists for best CEO here. 

 

So, what does 2015 look like, Mr Cook? You can tell us, we can keep a secret.
