Apple's Angela Ahrendts Is Nation's Best-Paid Female Executive


Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL)'s senior vice president of retail and online stores was the highest-paid female executive in the U.S. last year, according to a Bloomberg report.

The 54-year-old executive, Angela Ahrendts, got paid $105.5 million in 2014, including a sign-on bonus and make-whole grant for awards left behind at her former employer, according to Bloomberg.

Ahrendts joined Apple a year ago from Burberry Group plc (OTC: BURBY), a fashion retailer where she was chief executive.

First runner-up on Bloomberg's list is Oracle Corporation (NASDAQ: ORCL)'s Safra Catz, who obtained 2014 compensation of $71.2 million as chief financial officer.

Catz, 53, was named co-chief executive after Oracle's fiscal 2014 year ended.

Yahoo! Inc. (NASDAQ: YHOO) Chief Executive Marissa Mayer's $59.1 million 2014 paycheck won her third place on Bloomberg's list.

Other women with notable paychecks last year included Lockheed Martin Corp. (NYSE: LMT)'s Chief Executive Marillyn Hewson at $36.7 million; Mylan NV (NASDAQ: MYL) Chief Executive Heather Bresch, at $40 million, and Martine Rothblatt, co-CEO of United Therapeutics Corp. (NASDAQ: UTHR), with $33.3 million in awarded pay.
