We are now into the fifth year that Tim Cook is seated as CEO of the world’s most valuable brand, Apple Inc, since he took over from the late co-founder, Steve Jobs, in 2011 on 24th August.
In these five years, Tim Cook has more than just steadied the ship – he grew it, with Apple shares having grown 132% since the day he took over. Under his tenure, he oversaw the launches of several successful new products such as the Apple Watch, the iPad Pro, and the redesigned Macbook.
However, their main source of revenue is still coming from the sale of the iPhone.
Imagine this – in the past year, Apple sold 6.4 iPhones per second worldwide.
While Tim Cook has came out publicly about donating his new found wealth to charity, one can only wonder what the rest of us who may never see that kind of money in our lifetime, will do with it.
Here’s what he could buy with that $100 million. (All prices in USD)
105,374 Apple iPhone 6s Plus 128GB at $949 a phone
25,138 Fully Spec 27-inch iMac With Retina 5K Display $3978 each
400 Suborbital Space Flights with Virgin Galactic for $250,000 a trip
20 Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita supercars costing $4.8 million each
1 Ronde Island In Grenada At The Full $100 Million
1 Boeing Business Jet Also At That $100 million Mark
With that said, I’m sure that Tim will share with us many more milestones that he have achieved together with Apple during the imminent launch of the next iPhone in September.
We are definitely looking forward to the next “One more thing…”
