Samsung’s mobile boss out-earns Apple CEO Tim Cook

Samsung Vs Apple

Apple might be the most profitable technology company on the planet, but its chief executive’s hefty paycheck still wasn’t as high as his top rival’s last year. A new report from Reuters on Monday points out that Samsung’s mobile head JK Shin earned $5.8 million in compensation last year, 36% more than Apple CEO Tim Cook, who made $4.25 million in 2013. Cook’s pay was up slightly from the $4.17 million he earned in 2012. Samsung’s co-CEOs Kwon Oh-hyun and Yoon Boo-keun also saw huge paychecks in 2013, taking home $6.4 million and $4.8 million, respectively. Samsung, as Reuters points out, was the world’s biggest technology company by revenue in 2013.
