Following Apple CEO Tim Cook being honored with Auburn University’s College of Human Sciences Lifetime Achievement award last December, the university in Alabama from which Tim Cook graduated has shared a video profiling the Apple CEO and his impact at Auburn. While the video was first posted in March and surfaced today, it features commentary and interviews from other notable Apple figures including Jeff Williams, Senior VP of Operations, and Bob Iger, Disney CEO and Apple board member.
In the video, Iger calls Cook “a great leader” and notes his passion and ethics. Auburn notes having Apple’s CEO as a graduate as an excellent recruitment tool.
Tim Cook delivered the commencement speech for Auburn University’s spring class in 2010. He often shares his affection for his alma mater and its football team.
Earlier this year, a local publication in South Alabama near Tim Cook’s hometown wrote about the Apple CEO’s experience growing up in Robertsdale, Alabama. Check out Auburn University’s video below.
