Steve Jobs: Once Again One Of The “World’s Best CEO’s”

Just like every year, online publication Barron’s has posted its list of the “world’s best CEO’s”, and like last year Steve Jobs is included and considered “without a doubt” the most valuable one. The list, which includes names like Jeff Bezos of Amazon and Jamie Dimon of JPMorgan Chase, is made of 18 CEO’s of US-based companies and eight of them are new entries. Steve Jobs is mentioned – in spite of his medical leave of absence – for the amazing milestone of 100 million iPhones sold, the release of the iPad and the continuous success of Apple’s products overall.
