larry8 Well kind of the right industry but the wrong part of it… or something.

I wonder how Oracle CEO Larry Ellison copes – SEC filings released today show that his 2008 fiscal year total compensation package was USD84.6 million. Ellison also realised a $544 million windfall from cashing in stock option. Other awe-inspiring stats: Oracle paid Ellison a $1 million base salary and $10.8 million in non-equity incentive compensation. Oracle also paid $1.4 million to protect Ellison, with most of the bill covering security at his 45-acre home in Silicon Valley.

How does he cope? Must be tough making ends meet…
