Charting Tim Cook’s 5-Year Anniversary as CEO
As of this week, Tim Cook has been the permanent CEO of Apple for five years, which gives the punditocracy an excuse to opine ad nauseam about whether Cook is Apple’s best CEO ever or a poor excuse for Steve Jobs. Our take: let the numbers speak for themselves. Charts developed by Jan Dawson of Jackdaw Research show just how Apple has evolved over the past five years. You can see just how dominant iPhone unit sales and revenues are, how the Services category is growing, the importance of China to Apple’s fortunes, and more.
More of the uncanny ability of Steve Jobs to pick winners.
