MarketWatch names Jobs ‘CEO of the Decade’

MarketWatch has named Apple CEO Steve Jobs the “CEO of the Decade.” In a lengthy profile accompanying the award, Jobs is praised for turning the company around in the late ‘90s, for the stream of successful product introductions—iTunes, the iPod, iPhone, and iPad—that have come since, and for driving the company’s stock price upward. “The resurrection of Apple is just the most astounding story that’s probably happened in business in at least a decade — you might be able to go further and say it’s a half-century,” says Roger Kay, president of Endpoint Technologies, a technology-industry think tank. “It’s on par with Thomas Edison and Alexander Graham Bell in terms of its total impact.” The article also compares Jobs to Walt Disney; Jobs served as CEO of Pixar for much of the decade before selling the animation studio to The Walt Disney Company, in turn becoming its biggest individual shareholder and securing himself a seat on the board.
