A few hours ago, Recode shared the list of top 100 executives globally in tech, media, and business for 2017. Jeff Bezos of Amazon topped the list with Susan Fowler (the lady who exposed inner-culture of Uber), taking the second spot. Megan Twohey, Jodi Kantor, and Ronan Farrow were jointly on the third position for exposing Harvey Weinstein’ssexual assault over the years.
Mark Zuckerberg was ranked at number 4 for changing the way news is delivered to social media users and on top of that, he and facebook made a lot of money doing that. Tim Cook got the 5th position on the list with a remark by Recode that he is officially underrated and needs much more recognition and exposure than he currently gets.
The report highlights the good year Apple has had under the leadership of Tim Cook. The sales projections for this year show Apple touching $232 Billion in sales. The figure is $20 Billion more than what Apple had collected in 2016. Along with sales projection, the report also points out work in Augmented Reality and Apple Watch under Tim Cook.

Cook and company are also setting Apple up to succeed in augmented reality — where real life and computer graphics are mixed— which many see as one of the next big technology waves.
The report has also praised Tim Cook for his stance on a number of issues including equality, immigration, climate change and education. Also, the growing number of social appearances of Tim Cook has been highlighted in the report.
The final note for the Apple CEO includes
