Google’s executives make it rain but Apple’s cause a downpour – Quartz

Stashed in: Google!, Apple

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

"Of all of the named executives at Google and Apple, the CEOs are making the least. Google chief Larry Page was paid $1 in 2012 (as was Google co-founder Sergey Brin). Apple CEO Tim Cook made $4.2 million, significantly more than Page but significantly less than his top lieutenants."


"Both executives are positioned to have their payday if they lead their companies to success. While Cook owns 13,817 shares of Apple, he has another 1,125,000 restricted stock units that fully vest by 2021. Page owns 25 million shares of Google. Put another way, every dollar his company’s stock price appreciates is a $25 million personal gain for Page. In 2012, Google’s share price rose $113.41."

Double wow.
