After the demise of Steve Jobs, the mantle of Apple chief fell on Tim Cook; but the shoes were big to fill. However, Tim Cook took charge his own way and was proud to show the world how he runs Apple.

Cook introduced stock-buyback and charitable-giving programs to customers, made management shake-ups such as firing the person in charge of the mobile operating system iOS, Scott Forstall and retail chief John Browett who were long standing employees. In short, it is widely spoken the he has introduced corporate culture. Cook also recently unveiled the iPhone 5 and the iPad Mini.

Cook’s most noteworthy achievement, however, is how he saw through the patent war win over Samsung. While it’s a little tough to compete with the man who gave the world iPods and iPads, Cook has certainly made his mark.
