Apple CEO Tim Cook made his debut at D10 last year in his first major interview as the new leader of the iconic and powerful tech giant. Since taking over from industry legend Steve Jobs, Cook has faced an increasingly high-pressure market and intense competition from a range of rivals, most especially Google’s Android, as well as popular offerings from Korea’s Samsung. Before Jobs stepped down, Cook was Apple’s COO, headed the company’s Macintosh division, and played a key role in the continued development of strategic reseller and supplier relationships. Prior to joining Apple, he worked at Compaq and IBM.
