New HP CEO’s Salary: $1.2 million, Plus Bonuses

What did it cost Hewlett-Packard to sign Léo Apotheker as its new CEO? Quite a bit, as you might expect. According to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing, Apotheker will receive an annual salary of $1.2 million for the next two years, a $4 million signing bonus and an additional $4.6 million for relocation assistance (!?). For fiscal 2011, his incentive bonus will be 200 percent of his base salary, with a ceiling of 500 percent. In other words, Apotheker will make $3.6 million in salary next year–at the very least.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
