Tim Cook, one of the most famous names in the tech space, joined iPhone-maker Apple in 1998, after reportedly meeting Apple’s most prominent face, Steve Jobs.

Not just known for his CEO role but also for his work, Tim Cook has earned a name for himself as a creative boss and for increasing Apple’s revenue and profit, making it one of the most valuable companies.
