Being an executive director in the IT industry, of course, is not an easy job, but a salary pays for all efforts. And Apple CEO Tim Cook is a prime example: he is currently the highest paid executive director in the IT industry. Cook received over $ 133 million last year.
This means that Tim Cook, according to Bloomberg, ranks second among CEOs in general. The first place belongs to Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who earned at least $ 595 million in 2019.
As for the rivals of Apple’s IT leader, Intel CEO Robert Swan came closest to him with his $ 99 million last year. He is followed by Alphabet CEO Sundar Pichai with a salary of more than $ 86 million. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella is ranked 9th with $ 77 million for 2019.
Currently, Apple is the most expensive company in the world, so it is not surprising that Tim Cook is not in poverty either. It is reported that more than $ 122 million of all the money he received in 2019 came from stock remuneration, and his annual bonus is “only” $ 7.6 million.
In the case of Ilon Musk, who led the list of the highest paid executives in 2019, all the money he received came from optional bonuses. The head of Microsoft, Satya Nadella, also received more than $ 64 million in shares, and more than $ 10.7 million as a bonus for the company’s results in 2018.
In general, IT industry executives still dominate the lists, and Bloomberg data shows that at least 4 out of 10 CEOs in the top ten belong to this sector.
It is reported that Tim Cook has already promised to donate all his money received in 2019.
