Honestly for as much damn money as Apple makes thats actually not that egregious compared to a lot of CEOs who are making that as their corporations go bankrupt. Still an obscene amount of money.

I’m curious about the delta between him and the average salary at Apple and how that compares to the rest of the industry.

I live in Raleigh, and the announced average salary for the Apple location that is being built here is $190k/yr.

That’s significantly above the average even in an area that has fairly high salaries for the southeast.

Exactly. I’m willing to bet that Tim Apple’s relative comp package is far smaller than most CEOs.

On the surface it looks like it is less than my company’s CEO (I’m in the regulated utilities sector.)
