Timothy D. Cook is, since the resignation of Steve Jobs August 24, 2011, the CEO of Apple Inc.

Tim Cook grew up in Alabama. His father worked in a shipyard and his mother was a housewife. Graduated in 1982 from Auburn University in Alabama in industrial engineering, he obtained his MBA in 1988 at Duke University in North Carolina, one of the most prestigious American universities.

Tim Cook has worked for 12 years at IBM, where he supervised the production and distribution in North America and Latin America. Then, he joined Compaq and became vice president in charge of the production, the procurement and the inventory management.

Steve Jobs poached himself Tim Cook at Compaq in 1997. Tim Cook joined Apple in March 1998, a year after the return of Steve Jobs at the helm.

In 2000, Tim Cook became director of international sales, and in 2004 he took head of the Macintosh division, which is responsible of MacBook, MacBook Pro and iMac.
Since that day, Mac sales are constantly raising. Tim Cook knows how to sell. These excellent results allow him to evolve in the company. In 2007 Tim Cook became Chief Operating Officer of the company.

In January 2011, even if he is on the sick list, Steve Jobs is always CEO but Tim Cook is at the helm of the company daily.

Anecdotes
Tim Cook has received for long time the biggest salary of Apple (700,000 dollars a year, without counting his stock options which represent a benefit of $ 100 million).

Tim Cook is a fan of fitness. He enjoys hiking, biking (he admires Lance Armstrong) and spent many hours in the gym.

Two years ago, the Los Angeles Times wrote: "Cook is a workaholic and a gym addict, and he is known to be as obsessive and exacting as Jobs himself. (...) He is often the first to arrive and the last to leave the office. He starts sending e-mails to his colleagues at 4:30 am and, for years, held a conference call on Sunday evening to prepare the meetings of Monday morning. "

He lives in a rented house in Palo Alto, California.
