As CEO and a member of Apple's board of directors, Tim has overseen the introduction of some of the world’s most innovative products and services including the new iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, Apple Watch Series 4, iPad Pro and MacBook Air. 

Tim has championed inclusion and diversity at Apple, investing in educational opportunities for students of all ages and backgrounds, and ensuring Apple offices and stores are open and welcoming to everyone. Under Tim’s leadership, Apple achieved an environmental milestone: powering its global facilities on 100 percent renewable energy. It’s now pursuing the even wider goal of helping its global suppliers do the same. In the seven years since Tim became CEO, Apple initiated a program to match employee donations, has given millions of dollars to the American Red Cross and other NGOs, has become the largest corporate donor to (RED) to fight AIDS in Africa, and became Malala Fund’s first Laureate partner.
In April, Tim was again named to Fortune’s World's 50 Greatest Leaders list. He has also been named Person of the Year by the Financial Times and honored with the Newseum’s Free Speech Award for using his position to take a public stand on important social issues. Apple has ranked #1 on Fortune’s World’s Most Admired Companies for the past eleven years, including each year Tim has been CEO. Earlier this year, Apple was named World’s Most Innovative Company by Fast Company.

Tim was a Fuqua Scholar at Duke, where he earned an MBA, and holds a bachelor’s degree in industrial engineering from Auburn University.
