CNBC Titans #6: Steve Jobs
Irrepressible, irascible, and iconic, Steve Jobs has reigned as the undisputed king of Silicon Valley for the better part of three decades. From his parents' California garage he launched the personal computer revolution and built Apple into the most envied, and valuable, technology company in the world. From the Macintosh and the iPod, to iTunes and the iPhone, Jobs has personally presided over the creation of dozens of transformational devices, battling hostile corporate boards, cutthroat competitors, and life-threatening illness while securing his legacy as one of the few visionary who dared to "Think Different."
CNBC Titans #7: Jack Welch
Maria Bartiromoexplores the life of one of the most admired and controversial business TITANS in history, Jack Welch. When Welch became General Electric's youngest CEO in 1981, he transformed the century old company into a leaner, more flexible, and profitable corporation, increasing it’s market value by $387 billion and making it the most valuable company in the world. But in doing so Welch trimmed GE's workforce by more than 100,000, earning him the nickname he despised "Neutron Jack" a reference to the bomb designed to remove the people but leave the buildings intact. From growing up in a working class neighborhood in Salem, Massachusetts, to becoming Fortune’s "Manager of the Century" in 1999, CNBC looks at the rise of one of the most influential CEO’s in business.
