AMD has been in the limelight over the years, and in the x86 processor market is like a fish in the water, to achieve a turn. Correspondingly, Dr. Su Zifeng, CEO of the central figure in decision-making, is a credit. According to the remuneration statistics of the CEOs of the listed companies of the Standard and Poor’s 500 companies, Su Zifeng’s combined compensation income in 2019 reached $58.5 million ($419 million), the highest.
With only 5% of female CEOs participating in the statistics, Su’s achievements are even more difficult to say. The second-ranked woman is Lockheed Martin, and Marillin A. Hewson earned $24.4 million last year, compared with 41 percent of Dr. Su’s.
In second place was Discovery CEO David Zslav, with an annual income of $45.8 million ($320 million), and Disney CEO Bob Iger, who earned $45.6 million last year.
It is important to note that the compensation in the statistics includes not only base salary, but also stock awards, bonuses and other income. In fact, Dr. Su’s base salary is only $1 million, and she is reported to have received $53 million in stock awards and $1.2 million in performance awards in 2019.
Capital markets are sure to focus on earnings parity, with Dr. Su’s share price at $2.80 when he first took charge in 2014 and is now stable at $50, a 50-year high of $58.9 in February.
In addition, the list does not include the name of AMD’s old rival Intel CEO Sr. and NVIDIA CEO Huang Renxun, who “lost” because statistics require the CEO to be in office for at least two years, and the latter is unclear, with reports that He earned about $13.6 million a year.
