Apple CEO, Tim Cook becomes a billionaire

Posted by E.L.E.X on August 11 2020 under Tech/Cybersecurity









Apple CEO, Tim Cook has become a billionaire after the Cupertino-based iPhone maker broke all previous records to become the world's most valued company at over $1.84 trillion.

 

According to Bloomberg Billionaires Index, the net worth of Cook has eclipsed $1-billion mark, officially making him a billionaire. 

 

"Cook owns 847,969 shares directly and took home more than $125 million last year as part of his pay package," reports the BBC.

 

The milestone comes 9-years after Tim Cook took over from Steve Jobs, who died in October 2011.

 

Last week, Apple surpassed Saudi Arabia’s state-owned oil company Saudi Aramco to become the world’s most valuable company.

 

The massive earnings helped Apple shares closed up 10.47 percent to become the world’s most valuable publicly-traded company, surpassing the largest oil producer in the world.

 

Apple is now closing in on the milestone of being the first company to be valued at $2 trillion. Back in 2018, Apple was also the first US company to cross the $1-trillion mark.

 

However, Cook still has a long way to meet up with other CEOs on the Bloomberg Billionaires' list, like Amazon Founder and CEO Jeff Bezos ($187 billion), former Microsoft CEO Bill Gates ($121 billion) and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg ($102 billion).
