Apple’s current CEO Tim Cook is already thinking about who might be the next on his position when he’s gone.
And it seems like he wants some options.
“I see my role as CEO to prepare as many people as I can to be CEO, and that’s what I’m doing. And then the board makes a decision at that point in time,” Cook said in an interview with BuzzFeed News.
Cook gave the interview at Apple’s new Chicago retail store, a flagship store of the company as it is looking forward to transforming its stores into a must-see sight.
Apple’s retail head, Angela Ahrendts, was also there along with the current CEO, but it’s not surprising she was there, but it is notable for Cook to discuss such a topic next to her. Ahrendts is considered a top candidate for the position.
