John Sculley is a businessman and investor in high-tech start-ups who is best known for serving as a vice president of Pepsi-Cola from 1970 to 1977 and as president of Pepsi-Cola from 1977 to 1983, up until his transformation as CEO of Apple Inc. in 1983, a position he held until his departure in 1993.
Margaret Blackburn and John Sculley, Jr. gave birth to John Sculley in the year 1939. His mother works as a gardener, while his father is a Wall Street lawyer. New York was his birthplace. Before arriving in New York, this entrepreneur spent the majority of his boyhood in Bermuda with his brothers. In terms of his education, he attended Southborough High School in Massachusetts. He also graduated from the university with a bachelor’s degree in architectural design and an MBA.
John Sculley began his career as an apprentice at the Pepsi-Cola division of PepsiCo in 1967. He enrolled in a six-month training program at a bottling workshop in Pittsburgh. At the age of 30, this entrepreneur became the association’s youngest marketing vice-president in 1970. Furthermore, under his leadership, Apple’s sales increased from $800 million to $8 billion. However, few people attribute his success to the fact that he worked in the company at a time when Steve Jobs’ visions and even Steve Wozniak’s formations were becoming profitable. His tenure at Apple is contentious due to his departure from Steve Jobs’ original named sales arrangement, particularly due to his decision to compete with IBM in retailing computers to similar clienteles. Few people have remarked that they battled on organizational styles and even dominances, because Jobs focused on pursuing innovation while Sculley focused more on current product brands and profitability. Sculley was eventually forced to retire as Apple’s CEO due to his opposition to authorizing Macintosh software and even his discussions with Goldman-Sachs about the company’s fragmentation into two firms. Inflexion Point, XL Marketing (formerly titled Zeta Interactive), 3CInteractive, Mobeam, Open Peak, next source, X10 Credit, Wardmate, and Pivot Acquisition Corp. are among the high-tech start-ups in which this entrepreneur is currently invested. He is now the Chairman of People Ticker as well as a member of Skills Village.
