These Are Dell’s Five Highest Compensated Executives In Fiscal Year 2022

O’Ryan Johnson

Dell’s top five executives recorded a combined $93 million in total compensation in fiscal year 2022 as the tech giant recorded record revenue, cash flow and earnings.

1. Co-COO Anthony “Chuck” Whitten

Total FY2022 compensation: $51.42 million

Total FY2022 compensation: N/A

Whitten was a Bain & Company consultant for 23 years. While he led Bain’s Southwest region, the business more than doubled, was among the best Bain office in employee satisfaction, recognized in 2020 and 2021 as one of Fortune Magazine’s best workplaces in Texas. Whitten spent the last ten years working with technology clients, where he worked with Dell in shaping the company’s long-term strategy. He was was wooed to join Dell as Co-Chief Operating Officer last year.

Whitten graduated with honors from Rice University, and then received an MBA from Harvard Business School in 2004. He now expects to earn $51 million this year – almost as much as the entire 18-players currently signed to the NHL’s Columbus Blue Jackets roster who are due to earn a combined $54 million in 2022.

In order to win him away from Bain & Company, Dell gave Whitten “a cash sign-on bonus of $5 million,” according to the filing. Further, “to secure his services,” Dell also awarded Whitten a $45 million “new hire equity award” in the form of time-based RSUs with five-year ratable vesting. The rub is that according to the filing “98 percent of Mr. Whitten’s pay is at-risk, time-based and performance-based pay.”
