Chief Operating Officer
Jeff Williams has played a key role at Apple since he joined the company in 1998, when Steve Jobs was rebuilding it. He was key to the launch of the original iPhone, instrumental in the development of the Apple Watch, and is, today, innovating new developments in health and medical research. This year he oversaw huge developments in personal health on both the iPhone and Apple watch, which launched secure sharing and a better look at health metrics. He reports directly to CEO Tim Cook and many see him as Cook’s natural successor.
