2015 could see even higher earnings

2015 is certainly on par to be one of the banner years in the history of Apple. The company is set to bring the Apple Watch and the new 12 inch MacBook Air to the consumer market this year and that means that newer and bigger revenue streams will be coming to the iconic company. This could leave consumers to ponder just how much money do Apple executives make in one year. A recent report that was published on the website has brought those numbers into a bigger light and consumers will most certainly be interested over those numbers.

Now that Apple is a publicly traded company, the numbers and the amount of money that their chief executives make is available to the public. Tim Cook is the current head of Apple and in 2014 he was able to bring in a total of $9.2 million in salary. A breakdown of those numbers show that Cook was given $1.7 million in salary and the rest of the compensation was that of non-equity based performance of the company. In other words, he was given $6.7 million based on the success of the company and set goals that they attained.

Angela Ahrendts was a new hire to Apple as she was brought over to Apple from Burberry to help with the retail strategy and focus of the company. Ahrendts was given $3 million in salary and an added $70 million in stock. A huge number indeed. Chief Financial Officer in Peter Oppenheimer retired from the company in 2014 but was able to bring in $4.5 million in salary. Luca Maestri was hired to replace Oppenheimer and she was paid $1 million in salary with an added $13 million in stock and bonuses.

iTunes and Apple Apps store boss Eddy Cue was able to garner $4 million in salary with an added $20 million in stock. Then there was the Apple supply chain head Jeff Williams that was given $4 million in salary and an added $20 million in stock.

With the new added offerings and releases from Apple set for 2015, Apple executives could certainly see higher compensations during the course of the year.
