Jobs compensation package
The median pay for US CEOs increased by 15 percent last year and Apple CEO Steve Jobs was among the the CEOs of four companies -- Oracle., Apple, Yahoo and Colgate-Palmolive -- who watched their total compensation packages --largely through exercising stock options and receiving restricted stock, according to a report by The Associated Press: "The survey also examined the pay of 1,794 CEOs who held their posts for all of 2003, and found that median compensation was $1.85 million. IAC/InterActiveCorp's CEO, Barry Diller, had the highest total compensation, according to the survey. He received $156 million in 2003, including stock option profits of $151 million."
