Apple CEO Steve Jobs has been named CEO of the Decade in the MarketWatch 2010 CEO Awards (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/apples-jobs-rock-star-of-corporate-america-2010-12-08). “MarketWatch” calls him the “rock star of corporate America.”
Here’s what the publication has to say about Jobs: “Jobs’s tenure as the chief executive at Apple Inc. during the past 10 years is well-documented. After pulling his own company back from the brink of bankruptcy before the decade started, he almost single-handedly went on to save the recording industry with the iPod and iTunes.
“He revolutionized handheld devices and touch-screen technology with the iPhone. And he may well usher in a post-PC era of computing with his latest gadget, the iPad.”
“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,” adds 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.”
