Other high ranking Apple Inc employees to have received high salaries include Angela Ahrendts, CEO of Apple’s retail and online stores from Burberry Group Plc, who received a compensation package worth US$73.4-million in 2014. Her salary was US$411 538. This includes US$70-million worth of stock. Luca Maestri, promoted to chief financial officer in 2014, received pay worth US$14-million, including a salary of US$717 211 and US$11.3-million in stock. Eddy Cue, head of Internet software and services, and Jeff Williams, head of operations, both received packages worth about US$24 million, including salaries of US$947 596 and stock worth around US$20-million.

Cook appears to have been something of a lucky charm for Apple. The company’s stock rose to US$119.75 in November, making the company the first in the US to be valued at more than US$700 billion. Cook also rolled out a mobile-payment system called Apple Pay, and this year will debut the company’s first smartwatch.

Apple’s full year net income of the 2014 fiscal year was US$39.5-billion, an increase from US$37-billion in 2013.
