The High Styles of High Tech CEOs

The High Styles of High Tech CEOs

It's difficult to imagine what a CEO of a multi-billion dollar company might look like. We take a peek at a handful of the men behind the curtain for some of the biggest names in the tech industry.

Google's Larry Page
Larry Page is one of those smart young guys who never was the cool guy but always nice enough. Like a young kid in an over-grown suit, he never quite filled out the clothes but boy did he grow to his potential, complete with a head of grey hair but still carrying that baby face.

Microsoft's Steve Balmer
Ever since taking over the reigns from Bill Gates, Microsoft's leader position has gone from high tech dork to high powered executive style. Steve Balmer has shown wild and crazy sides of his personality, but his look is pure business CEO.

Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg
Armed with a curly head of hair, a big smile, and wearing a uniform similar to Steve Jobs', Mark Zuckerberg always seems to look like he's still lounging in class at University with his grey t-shirt, jeans, and sneakers.

Apple's Steve Jobs
Ok, we know that Steve Jobs just resigned the other day and was replaced by Tim Cook, but who the hell is Tim Cook? Even though his uniform jeans, turtleneck, and sneakers weren't the coolest (see Mark Zuckerberg), he wore it well and played it off. Steve Jobs' defined Apple's hipster cool, in his style and vision.

Dell's Michael Dell
According to Dell's website, Michael Dell became the youngest CEO ever to earn a ranking on the Fortune 500. After founding the company in 1984 at the age of 19 with $1,000, Dell's now got a team of 100,000 members. To us he just looks like your buddy's fun dad that threw the ball around and drove a cool car.

HP's Léo Apotheker
HP's CEO comes across as a senior trusted political aide to the president of a country more than the CEO of a company that just dumped its recent expensive purchase. Wait, don't governments do that sort of thing as well?

Lenovo's Yang Yanqing
Are we really surprised here? Enough said about Lenovo's Yang Yanqing?
