John Sculley is an internationally recognized corporate leader who is best known for his position as the former CEO of Apple. His innovative outlook on business brought big brand marketing to the Silicon Valley and allowed him to work with some of the most talented innovators in high technology such as Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. Sculley’s experience and life story have been portrayed in several movies, including „Pirates of Silicon Valley“, „Jobs“ and a soon to be released movie by Aaron Sorkin and Danny Boyle called „Steve Jobs“.
in 1967, Sculley joined Pepsi-Cola Co. as a trainee. At the age of 30, he became the company’s youngest marketing vice president, and helped create the first two liter plastic soft drink container which enabled Pepsi to be the first soft drink to be introduced into mass merchandising. John Sculley also helped launch the Pepsi Challenge, which is one of the most successful marketing campaigns to date. In 1977, Sculley became Pepsi-Cola Co.’s youngest president and CEO.
After a successful career at Pepsi-Cola Co., Sculley was recruited to Apple by Steve Jobs in 1983 to bring his „cola wars“ big brand marketing skills to the Silicon Valley and help revitalize the Apple II in order to provide the cash flow needed for the development of the first Macintosh computer which was launched a year later. During Sculley’s tenure as Apple CEO, the Mac became the largest selling hardware PC in the world.
After leaving Apple in 1993, Sculley became a high tech entrepreneur, mentor and investor, helping companies such as MetroPCS, NFO Research, HotWire.com, Intralinks.com and InPhonics. Later, Sculley’s interest shifted to Big Data analytics where he founded Zeta Interactive and Misfit. He also became interested in consumer focused wellness and healthcare and has helped build MDLive, a leading tele-health company, Watermark Medical, a sleep technology firm, and FlexPharma, a biotech firm. He is still involved with many innovative start-up companies today. John Sculley has greatly influenced the way create and consume technology today.
“I try to bring a designer's eye to thinking about high technology through the eyes of the customer. I am always looking for better ways to give customers an exceptional customer experience. I have been on some amazing teams and I have had some really cool seats on the bus!“
Sculley continues to inspire, motivate, and contribute to developments in technology today and has recently introduced a smartphone in the emerging markets called Obi Worldphone.
John has also recently written a book called Moonshot!: Game Changing Strategies to Build Billion Dollar Businesses.
