Is any CEO worth a 100M yearly compensation package?

I know that 100M is a lot of money because during my corporate career I led a business unit of that size. Over 500 people were needed every day to keep that business growing and doing well.

I have a CEO client today who leads a 100M+ business and they employ more than 1000 people!

It's not uncommon today for one CEO to be paid 100M in yearly compensation. Here's a few examples.

Personally I don't believe any individual is worth 100M a year, regardless of how many people the business employs, or even if they've found a cure for cancer.

Why? No-one needs that kind of money personally in my view.

How much is enough for you? 

The synonyms for greedy tell a story - avaricious, acquisitive, covetous, rapacious, grasping, venal, cupidinous, materialistic, mercenary, predatory, usurious, possessive.

The underlying cause of many of the world's biggest problems - greed.

How much is enough for you? 

Who will you become? What will you do next?

Be remarkable.
