While 2011 was a bad year for Hewlett-Packard(s hpq), it was a very good one for chairman Ray Lane, at least financially.
Lane, who became executive chairman of HP on September 22, 2011 (he had been non-executive chairman since November 1, 2010, the start of HP’s FY 2011) logged more than $10 million in total compensation — the bulk of it in stock and options — for the fiscal year, according to the HP proxy.
But check out the numbers for yourself.
Other highlights from the proxy:
Meg Whitman who famously took the HP CEO position in September for $1 in salary, gets $16 million in stock and options. Former CEO Leo Apotheker walked away with $30.4 million when he was fired by HP last September.
