Apple CEO Tim Cook makes the first appearance in Canada
CEO of Apple Tim Cook has reportedly made his first public appearance in Canada yesterday. He represented himself as the head of Apple with an unexpected visit to Toronto last morning. According to a report published by Mac Rumors, Cook made a surprise visit to the company’s retail store just before noon local time. The retail store, which is located in Easton Centre shopping mall, had many attendees – including school-going children.
As per the pictures of the event that have shown up online, Cook seems to be having a relaxed time with young students who were attending the Apple Field Trip. For those who aren’t aware, the Apple Field Trip is an in-store initiative that introduces kids to coding, podcasting, and other creative skills as well. Tim Cook had previously visited Harlow College located near London, England before coming to Toronto.
After visiting the Eaton Centre Apple Store while in Toronto, Tim Cook attended a Maple Leafs game with hockey analyst and former player Nick Kypreos. His list of visits can be understood to be in line with Apple’s announcement that its “Everyone Can Code initiative” has recently expanded to over seventy colleges and universities across Europe.
Sometime last week, Cook was also reported to have visited Reno, wherein the company established and formally opened up a new data center. Tim Cook has been serving as Apple’s CEO since August 24, 2011, straight after a founder of Apple, late Steve Jobs resigned from the position for the last time.
In a recent interview, Tim Cook revealed Apple’s plans on building a new campus in America. While details regarding the same remain unknown at the moment, it is known that the company will end up generation around 20,000 to 50,000 jobs after the establishment of the campus.
