Sharing his name with Steve Carell’s character on “The Office,” who was Apple Computer’s first CEO?
Michael Scott is a fictional character and the protagonist of the NBC sitcom, The Office, portrayed by Steve Carell. Michael Scott serves as the regional manager of the Scranton, Pennsylvania branch of paper company, Dunder Mifflin Inc. The character shares his name with Michael Scott, the first CEO of Apple Computer from February 1977 to March 1981. Apple’s co-founders, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak, were deemed inexperienced for the post at the time, so Scott was convinced to assume the role of chief executive officer of the company.
The correct answer is Michael Scott.
