Apple sets new CFO Maestri’s base salary at $1 million a year

“Apple Inc.’s new chief financial officer, Luca Maestri, is the $1 million man,” Adam Satariano reports for Bloomberg.

“Maestri, who became CFO on May 29, will receive an annual salary of $1 million, according to a regulatory filing yesterday,” Satariano reports. “He was also awarded 6,337 in restricted stock units that will vest through 2018, which were worth $4 million based on Apple’s closing price of $633.”

Satariano reports, “Italian-born Maestri previously worked at companies including Xerox Corp. He joined Apple last year as corporate controller. When announcing Maestri’s promotion to CFO in March, Apple Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook said, “When we were recruiting for a corporate controller, we met Luca and knew he would become Peter [Oppenheimer]’s successor.””

  1. Pfft. For a million dollars and four in the bank I’d do that job too. … Ah, who am I kidding? That job would destroy me before lunchtime. Welcome aboard, Luca!

  2. That’s nuts. I wouldn’t do that job for $1M. He had better get an annual performance review with compensation increase for merely adequate performance, bonuses, annual stock option grants, and a Gulfstream V. I’m appalled at how cheap executives are these days. What is this, a C-Suite sweatshop? These guys need to unionize and fast.
