Apple’s 2010 proxy statement is out, so we get a chance to see how its top executives were paid for the year.
Tim Cook did the best of them all, getting $59 million in total compensation. The bulk of that came in the form of stock awards, but he did pick up a $5 million bonus.
Cook is the only executive to get a $5 million bonus. Maybe he was a hot property other companies tried poaching? Or maybe he did a bang up job.
Steve Jobs took his customary $1 salary.
The rest of the executive officers also did well for themselves picking up around $30 million in total compensation apiece.
Apple pays out equity every other year, which is why compensation this year is particularly high.
