Perhaps one of the most famous and influential people on our list, the man who changed the technology sector forever; Steve Jobs.
Steve Jobs was probably best known as the co-founder, chairman, and CEO of Apple Inc.; CEO and largest shareholder of Pixar Animation Studios; a member of The Walt Disney Company’s board of directors following its acquisition of Pixar; and founder, chairman and CEO of NeXT Inc.
He is widely recognized as the pioneer of the microcomputer revolution of the 1970’s along with business partner, Steve Wozniak.
Jobs spawned the “Think different” advertising campaign in 1997, developing a line of products that would later have larger cultural ramifications than anyone could have imagined. This campaign introduced the iMac, iTunes, Apple Stores, the iPod, the iPhone, the App Store, the iPad, and the reintroduction of Mac OS X.
At the time of his death in 2011, Jobs was widely regarded as one of the leading influencers of our generation and had a net worth of $6.7 Billion.
