2015 Pay Package: Joe Tucci
Tucci's pay totaled $10.4 million last year, a drop of more than 7 percent compared with the year before, thanks to the declining value of stock awards issued to him. The chairman, president and CEO's $1 million salary hasn't changed in recent years, and his bonus, $1.1 million last year, has fluctuated. Stock awards, however, have steadily declined, from $9.4 million in 2013 to $7.9 million last year. Tucci's 2015 package also included $320,964 in "other compensation," including $218,274 in air travel, as well as tax planning service, 401(k) contributions and other benefits. Tucci has been CEO of EMC since 2001, and chairman since 2006. He's staying in that capacity only until the merger with Dell closes. Under EMC's change-in-control policy, Tucci stands to collect about $39 million in cash and stock after the merger closes.
