Apple to Google Pay CFOs Most as Stocks Climb With Cash: Tech

Five of the ten best-paid finance chiefs last year work in the technology industry, as executives at companies from Apple Inc. to Google Inc. were rewarded for increasing profit, amassing cash and minimizing taxes.

Apple Chief Financial Officer Peter Oppenheimer earned the most in fiscal 2012 -- a $68.6 million package that dwarfed the $4.17 million awarded to Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Oracle Corp. CFO Safra Catz was second at $51.7 million, making her the highest-paid female leader, while Patrick Pichette at Google was No. 3, with $38.7 million.
