Apple's Tim Cook grabs top spot in list of most-liked tech CEOs

Tim Cook, the chief executive officer of Cupertino, California-based gadgets maker Apple, has grabbed the top spot in the list of most-liked tech CEOs, a fresh survey revealed.

In the survey, by the career website Glassdoor. com, Tim Cook nabbed the top spot with an overwhelming 97 per cent approval rating among employees.

The career website asked tech firms’ employees if they approve the way their chief executive officer is leading the company.

Speaking about the need of the survey, a Glassdoor spokesperson said, “What makes this list important is it's based on feedback from the CEOs' own employees. Wouldn't you want to work for an executive that employees strongly support given how he or she is leading the company?"

Mr. Cook was also nabbed the top rank among all chief executives officers across industries, despite the fact that he has been on the top job at Apple for less than a year.

He even beat out Apple’s co-founder and former chief, Steve Jobs, who had received an approval rating of 95 per cent in the Glassdoor’s last year’s survey.

The second spot was grabbed by Qualcomm's chief Paul Jacobs, who gained 95 per cent approval rating, while the third spot went to Google's chief Larry Page, who gained 94 per cent approval rating.

Intel's Paul Otellini and VMware's Paul Maritz emerged at fourth and fifth spots, with 93 per cent and 90 per cent approval ratings respectively.
