It’s pretty well known Apple as a company is worth big bucks, so it’s no surprise those that run it make big bucks also. But just how much? Between salary, any holiday bonus’ or even a pay-for-performance, they’re all raking it in. Tim Cook, now Apple CEO, received stock worth around say $510m when he took over in 2011. You’ll be amazed when you hear what he brought in just this past year.
Cook’s pay for fiscal 2012, which came to a close in september, included a $1.4 million salary, bonus of $2.8 million, and $17,000 in company contributions to his 401(k) account and life insurance premiums, according to a filing. No more shares, than the 1 million from 2011, were given this year. Half vested for 2016, and the other for 2021 so a lot can change but with Apple’s recent updates and additions, I don’t see them going anywhere soon.
