Re: Strong, but Jobs

"...Granted there are many reasons not to have liked the man, but it's impossible to deny that he got the fans completely rabid for new Apple product. He was a great hype man."

 

@Whoopty   Very true.  His real strength was in Marketing, but that's not as sexy as being perceived as a tech genius.

Love Redefined ?

Having a difficult time with the title of this piece.  Does anyone really love a company ?     I know I never have and never will unless it is my own.

Some are surprising
Most of the featured CEOs are no surprise (Tim Cook or Sundar Pichai) but was surprised to see MathWorks and Kronos' CEOs.

Strong, but Jobs
As much as I think the likes of Tim Cook are beloved by their customers and fans, I don't think anyone on this list encapsulates the beloved CEO like Steve Jobs did. 

Granted there are many reasons not to have liked the man, but it's impossible to deny that he got the fans completely rabid for new Apple product. He was a great hype man.
