Tim Cook Is A Baller: Highest Paid CEO In America

Tim Cook has only been Apple’s CEO for about 18 months and already he’s making more than anyone else. Cook was just named the highest paid CEO in America by CNBC. How much does he make? On average, around $95 million.

If you’re curious to see who else is in the list, here’s CNBC’s lineup:

  1. Tim Cook (Apple) — $95 million
  2. Larry Ellison (Oracle) — $70 million
  3. Ron Johnson (JC Penney) — $53 million
  4. Leslie Moonves (CBS Corporation) — $52 million
  5. Richard Adkerson (Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold) — $49 million
  6. Philippe Dauman (Viacom) — $43 million
  7. John Hammergren (McKesson Corporation) — $42 million
  8. Aubrey McClendon (Chesapeake Energy) — $39 million
  9. James Gallogly (James Gallogly) — $35 million
  10. David Simon (Simon Property Group — $35 million
  11. Robert Iger (Walt Disney) — $33 million
  12. Rex Tillerson (Exxon Mobil Corporation) — $30 million
  13. Michael Jeffries (Abercrombie & Fitch) — $29 million
  14. Rupert Murdoch (News. Corp) $28 million
  15. Louis Camilleri (Philip Morris International) — $28 million
  16. David Zaslav (Discovery Communications) — $27 million
  17. Brian Roberts (Comcast Corporation) — $27 million
  18. Miles White (Abbott Laboratories) — $27 million
  19. Ralph Lauren (Ralph Lauren Corporation) — $27 million
  20. Kieran Gallahue (CareFusion Corporation) — $25 million
  21. David Cote (Honeywell International) — $25 million

Tim Cook is followed closely by Larry Ellison and Ron Johnson, who both have ties with Apple in one way or another. Ellison was a friend of Apple’s co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs, while Johnson was Apple’s vice president of retail for about eight years before taking a position at JC Penny.

I’d settle for the bottom spot on the list.
