“Angela Ahrendts, Apple Inc.’s senior vice president of retail and online stores, was the highest-paid female executive in the U.S. last year,” Madeline McMahon reports for Bloomberg.
“The former chief executive officer of London-based fashion retailer Burberry Group Plc was awarded $82.6 million in 2014, according to data compiled by Bloomberg,” McMahon reports. “Ahrendts’s pay included a sign-on bonus and a make-whole grant for awards left behind at Burberry. The pay package is currently valued at $105.5 million.”
“Yahoo! Inc.’s Marissa Mayer was the country’s highest-paid female CEO. The 39-year-old was awarded $59.1 million in 2014, making her No. 3 among the eight women on the Bloomberg Pay Index, a daily ranking of the top-paid U.S. executives,” McMahon reports. “Her compensation, more than 95 percent of which is comprised of stock and options, has fallen in value to $45 million, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.”
“Oracle Corp.’s Safra Catz was No. 2 on the ranking after being awarded $71.2 million in fiscal 2014 for her role as chief financial officer,” McMahon reports. “Catz was named co-CEO after the Redwood City, California-based company’s fiscal 2014 year ended.”
