Of course that’s an easy accomplishment when you’re the the leader of the free digital world.
According to Bloomberg.com, Apple CEO Tim Cook, a 1982 Auburn grad (who posed for the Glom all four years he was in school), was the highest-paid chief executive officer in the U.S. last year, earning approximately $378 million in salary, perks, bonuses and stocks. That’s, like, five times more than his closest competition, Oracle Corp.’s Larry Ellison, who received a paltry $77 million.
We can only hope a portion of Cook’s compensation will go toward making Auburn’s iStadium a reality.
