I’m a huge fan of Cook. Crazy big pay day. $750M. 💰
Tim Cook, Apple’s chief executive, received more than 5m shares in the firm and sold most of them, pocketing over $750m this week. The stock grant—part of a compensation package set in 2011—was contingent on the tech firm meeting various financial targets, which it did. Under Mr Cook’s tenure, Apple’s market capitalisation has risen more than seven-fold. — Economist Espresso, Saturday, August 28.
