Enrique Salem, Symantec CEO and president
Salem netted an $8.5 million pay package in 2011, down 6% from the $9 million he received the prior year. Salem received a 20% salary boost to $750,000, up from $625,000 in 2010. His bonus increased significantly, too, climbing 38% to $4.3 million, up from $3.1 million last year. But his equity awards took a big hit. Salem received stock awards valued at $1.7 million (down from $2.4 million) and option awards valued at $1.7 million (down from $2.9 million). The company grew revenue by 3% (from $6 billion in 2010 to $6.2 billion in 2011) during its 2011 fiscal year. Profits are a different story, however. Symantec’s net income fell 16% to $597 million from $714 million in the prior year.
