The report states that Microsoft’s CEO made $84.3 million last year, and he’s the highest paid new CEO of last year. It’s also worth noting that WSJ states that Satya Nadella was also the highest paid CEO in its overall survey for 2014.
Obviously, this isn’t very surprising as Satya Natella made some good changes in the company, such as focusing on cross-platform services. As WSJ states, Microsoft’s stock has risen about 42% after Steve Ballmer – the former CEO of Microsoft announced his retirement back in 2013.
