Chalk up yet another accolade for Apple CEO Tim Cook. On Thursday, Apple's Chief Executive Officer, who once had the unenviable task of replacing Steve Jobs, was named by Time Magazine as one of the publication's 100 most influential people.

Lauded for his heart and integrity as much as his business acumen and skilled leadership, Time's recognition of Cook was authored by John Lewis, a civil rights leader and Congressman from the state of Georgia. In the brief piece, Cook is saluted for both his commitment to innovation and driving Apple to new creative heights, and also for "setting a new standard for what business can do in the world."

Cook "has shown that profitability and integrity can go hand in hand," Lewis writes. "Tim has done this while introducing, time and again, some of the most innovative products the world has ever seen. Tim Cook is proof that even the most successful companies can and should be judged by more than just their bottom line."
