Enrique Salem, former Symantec CEO and president
Symantec nearly doubled its profits and grew revenue by 9% during Salem’s last full year at the helm. For the 2012 fiscal year, revenue was $6.7 billion, compared to $6.2 billion in 2011. Net income was $1.2 billion, compared to $597 million a year earlier. Salem, meanwhile, received a $9.4 million pay package that included his $800,000 salary, $3.2 million bonus, equity awards valued at $5.3 million, and $98,462 worth of perks and other compensation. His compensation is up 10% compared to 2011, when his package was valued at $8.5 million. Last July, Symantec ousted Salem and Steve Bennett, chairman of Symantec’s board, took over as CEO.
