In today’s episode, Host Tom Loarie talks with Jay Elliot, Apple guru Steve Job’s great mentor and friend. Jay is a person of exceptional integrity and good character—as are all our guests. It is evident in all he does and has done—as an author, a serial entrepreneur, former Apple Executive Vice-President, and in his more than 40 years of operations experience with such corporate giants as IBM, Intel and Apple. Jay Elliot is the founder and CEO of TigoHealth, Inc., a medical apps software company empowering patients with mobile access to care, services and health data.
Years ago, Jay, an experienced operating executive from Intel at the time, met Steve Jobs in the reception area of a restaurant. At the time, Jobs needed someone with extensive operating experience. The result of their conversation that day led to a lifelong friendship and collaboration. Within weeks, Steve hired Jay to join Apple and serve as his right-hand man, which eventually segued into serving as a lifelong mentor and friend for many more years, until Jobs’ death in 2011.
