According to the latest report of Bloomberg, the net worth of CEO Tim Cook has surpassed 1 billion USD, officially bringing him to the club of billionaires. That’s an impressive number, but even as a billionaire, Tim Cook still has a long way to go if he wants to catch up with others like Mark Zuckerberg or Jeff Bezos.
Currently, Jeff Bezos is still at the top of the list of the richest people on the planet, with a net worth of 187 billion USD. Next is the Microsoft founder, Bill Gates with a fortune of 121 billion USD. Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg is currently ranked third, with $ 102 billion. Elon Musk is only 10th on this list, but his fortune is also up to $ 68.7 billion.
But Tim Cook is a particularly unusual case in this tech billionaire club. Because he didn’t start Apple, and it’s rare for any CEO who is not a founder to become a billionaire.
But Tim Cook built and developed Apple to become the most valuable company in the world, surpassing Saudi Arabia’s national oil and gas company in July. Tim Cook takes a much more conservative and calculated approach than his predecessor Steve Jobs. But the company’s revenues and profits have continued to grow strongly since he was CEO.
Apple’s market cap is currently $ 2 trillion. The reason that Tim Cook can become a billionaire is thanks to the huge bonuses received when constantly bringing Apple to new heights.
