New CEO of Microsoft will make a fortune
February 6 , 2014
Microsoft has picked its new CEO and it's quite obvious that Satya Nadella will be paid handsomely for his leadership.
Today's stock price suggests that Nadella will make approximately $17.2M this year and nearly double that amount in 2015. This rate will make him one of the five highest paid tech CEOs in the world.
He was also the highest paid executive of last year and made $7.7M inclusive of bonuses, stock grants and salary. The only person who made more than him was COO Kevin Turner. The former CEO of Microsoft made only $1.3M each year. Steve Ballmer didn't receive any stock awards and is the second-largest shareholder of the company.
