Fortune has created a list of its top 50 greatest leaders in the world, and Apple’s CEO Tim Cook has found himself in 33rd place.
The list is made up of philanthropists, politicians, celebrities, athletes, and people from anywhere else in society where you could possibly find a leader. Some examples of others included on the list are Pope Francis, who placed 1st, as well as Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Angelina Jolie, and Derek Jeter.
Here is the description that was provided along with Cook’s entry:
Following Steve Jobs has arguably been the toughest corporate leadership assignment in decades, yet Cook has carried it off with mostly quiet aplomb. In 2½ years he has kept the parade of winning new products marching (the Retina display, new operating systems, the iPhone 5), and he is bringing in Burberry’s savior, Angela Ahrendts, to run Apple’s retail stores. That’s thinking different.
Fortune says that the inspirational people it chose are based off of how they are “energizing their followers and making the world better.”
