Fortune names Tim Cook one of the world's greatest leaders

Tim Cook has been named one of Fortune's list of the World's 50 Greatest Leaders. Cook joins leaders such as Pope Francis, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and Ford CEO Alan Mulally. Fortune places Cook at 33 on the list, praising his record in the two-and-a-half years since he's become the full-time CEO of Apple, including his recent hiring of Angela Ahrendts. Fortune:

Following Steve Jobs has arguably been the toughest corporate leadership assignment in decades, yet Cook has carried it off with mostly quiet aplomb. In 2½ years he has kept the parade of winning new products marching (the Retina display, new operating systems, the iPhone 5), and he is bringing in Burberry's savior, Angela Ahrendts, to run Apple's (AAPL, Fortune 500) retail stores. That's thinking different.

What do you think of Tim Cook's leadership of Apple? Let us know below in the comments.
