Welcome back, Richest fans! In 2021, Bloomberg released their new version of the list for the highest-paid CEOs and executives across the United States. At number one is Tesla’s CEO, ElonMusk. And this has been the case for three years in a row now. And it’s not even a close contest. Musk’s salary package is nearly 12 times higher than second place! Today, we’re going to look at this list in detail. We’ll see who else made it and how their salary compares to Musk’s. We’ll also see the working history of these wealthy executives.
Now for the spoiler paragraph. If you like surprises, we suggest you stop reading and watch the video multiple times. We kick off by looking at the list’s criteria and seeing the massive rise of rich executives in recent years. Then, we delve into Musk’s salary. Next, we have Oak Street Health’s Mike Pykosz. Palantir Technologies’s CEO Alex Karp has one of the largest base salaries on the list! Then, we have not one but two CEOs at GoodRx. Those being Trevor Bezdek and Douglas Hirsch. With the rise of Opendoor, CEO Eric Wu also makes an appearance. He’s joined by the highest-paid woman on the list, the CFO of Opendoor, Carrie Wheeler. We then have Apple’s leader, Tim Cook. We’ll see how his base salary matches up against Google’s parent company Alphabet’s CEO, Sundar Pichai. Finally, we’ll briefly look at Warren Buffett’s company that has (at the time of making the video) the most expensive share price.
