2012 highest paid ceos in the world

2012 highest paid ceos in the world – How much money does one person need? Well whatever it is it is clear that the highest paid ceos in the world earn far more than anyone would ever need!

So how much do they earn? Salaries are varied in som eof the worlds biggest or most profitable corporations but it’s no surprise that the numbers are all in the several millions and then when ou add on compensation in the form of things like stock options it’s mind blowing how much they are pulling in!

I don’t have access to 2012 data yet but this data from AP and Forbes for 2011 should be fairly close to the 2012 figures (although 2010-2011 did see a 16% rise so that may be something to factor in).

From AP

  2. Leslie Moonves, CBS, $68.4 million, up 20 percent
  3. David M. Zaslav, Discovery Communications, $52.4 million, up 23 percent
