Tech moguls Tim Cook, Mark Zuckerberg, and Jeff Bezos all scored on the bottom half of the scale for trustworthiness, according to analysis conducted by global brand consultancy Landor.
The CEOs of major tech companies face an interesting and challenging public perception. They can sometimes seem like celebrities, generating a certain buzz and excitement among people. But business scandals and other issues can prompt that same public to see them as untrustworthy. A study by consultancy group Landor looks at some top tech moguls and their companies to learn how consumers view them.
. . .
Among the tech moguls included in the study, Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Apple CEO Tim Cook both ranked in the 21st percentile for trustworthiness, meaning they were considered more trustworthy than only 20% or less trustworthy than 80% of the other brands analyzed. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg scored in the 13th percentile, meaning he was seen as less trustworthy than 88% of the other brands, while Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos ended up in the 6th percentile, seen as less trustworthy than 95% of the other brands. Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce, and John Zimmer, CEO of Lyft, were both ranked in the 2nd percentile on trust.

Oops, make that 79%!
The leftism these moguls spew comes with the expectation that it will appease the rabble, to keep it from crashing through the gates of their manicured manors. They may need a new playbook.
Jack Dorsey (Twitter)
Sundar Pichai (Alphabet/Google)
Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook)
Dont know what makes you think so. Barr doesnt seem at all interested in pursuing McCabe. I got $100 bucks that is safe in my wallet that nobody ever goes to prison for #FusionCollusion.
Disappointed that Cook is on that untrustworthy list considering the lengths to which Apple goes to protect its customers privacy. Top on the untrustworthy list should be Bezos and Sundar Pichai. And Pichai should be #1 untrustworthy by a country mile.
Interesting that almost nobody recognizes the name Pinchai (I had to look it up myself).
Not really a fair scale as Zuckerberg is really a cyborg and shouldn’t count.
Tim Cook is a pallid censorious fruitcake who pushed for - and got - the elimination of the American computer manufacturing industry off to dictatorial China.
I suspect that Jack Dorsey is fairly low in popularity as well.
So what is the common denominator amongst all these fabulously wealthy, but despised CEOs, hmmmmm?
