After being named "Person of the Year" by the Financial Times, and also being a runner-up for Time's own "Person of the Year" award, Apple's CEO has now received another noteworthy distinction.
CNN has named Apple Chief Executive Tim Cook its 2014 CEO of the year, placing him ahead such top executive as BlackBerry CEO John Chen, Meg Whitman of Hewlett-Packard, and Sally Smith of Buffalo Wild Wings, among others.
The CNNMoney rankings noted that AAPL stock is up 40 percent this year, and reached new all-time high levels. Here's what the publication said:
