Bangalore: Apple Inc is a success story. The company currently wears the crown of the share market, and is the talk of Wall Street. The one man responsible for what Apple is today is undoubtedly the charismatic Steve Jobs. Jobs had ability to create value for shareholders and employees, and to define their industry to both competitors and consumers alike. His focus was on a long-term vision that trumps the quarterly drumbeat of the Wall Street yet. There was his shrewd use of capital to grow his company and to cripple competitors. And above all, there was his desire to connect completely with customers so his product would almost sell itself. If you think, all these awe inspiring characteristics are sole Steve Job stuff, then think again. There are five CEOs who will remind you of Jobs the way they think and carry out themselves, read on to know these CEOs as compiled by Market Watch.



#5 Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com



Jeffrey Preston "Jeff" Bezos is an American entrepreneur who played a key role in the growth of e-commerce as the founder and CEO of Amazon.com, an online merchant of books and later of a wide variety of products. Under his guidance, Amazon.com became the largest retailer on the World Wide Web and the model for Internet sales.



He is single handedly responsible for the growth of company’s shares, up about 12,700 percent since 1997. Amazon was the first true e-commerce success story. Now people talk  Amazon’s Kindle Fire as an iPad competitor, but the matter of the fact is, original Kindle arrived in 2007, just a few months after the iPhone was born and while viability of “e-books” still was uncertain.



According to comScore, an Internet analytics company, in June 2011 Amazon was visited by 282 million people, or we can put it like-- 20.4 percent of the world’s online population.
