As Microsoft Prospers, Here's What 5 Top Execs Are Paid
While CEO Satya Nadella saw the largest pay increase during Microsoft's latest fiscal year, other executives also received expanded stock awards and other compensation.
Amy Hood, executive vice president and CFO at Microsoft, was the second highest-paid executive listed in the proxy statement with a total pay package of $20.2 million for fiscal 2019. That was up 36 percent from $14.9 million during the previous fiscal year. Along with a comparatively modest base salary bump of $83,000, Hood saw an increase of $3.2 million in stock awards during the year.
Hood "supported record year financial performance and management with revenue growth of 14% and operating income growth of 23% and returned over $30 billion in cash to shareholders through stock buybacks and dividends," Microsoft said in the proxy filing.
