Tim Cook is reportedly the highest-paid CEO in the world, according to the Wall Street Journal. Cook, the CEO of Apple, was paid nearly $400 million last year when he took up the mantle of full-time CEO. However, while that is an incredible sum, it is also vesting slowly over the next five years, so it isn’t as if he got one large lump sum of cash. The next highest-paid CEO? Oracle CEO Larry Ellison with $76 million.
