Apple’s senior vice president of retail and online stores, Angela Ahrendts, was the highest-paid female executive in the United States. According to Bloomberg, the executive made $82.6 million in 2014.
Bloomberg’s pay ranking includes pay-for-performance using an executive’s compensation as a percentage of their company’s economic profit. Going off of that, the executive is number one over all women on this list, with a salary that equates to 0.3% of Apple’s $28.6 billion economic profit.
In the Spring of 2014, Angela Ahrendts left her position as CEO of Burberry and joined Apple. She has control over all of Apple’s retail and online operations and she has had a fair amount of criticism over the ‘troubled’ Apple Watch launch.
