Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk: No, they're not the highest-paid CEOs, now meet the top-grossers By Qatar Day - August 17, 2021

The three highest-paid CEOs in the US received over $1.7 billion in 2020

PHENOMENAL PAY: The top earners on the Equilar 200 list are often recipients of multi-year equity grants intended to pay out over an extended time period, and 2020 was no different. These awards are reported to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) as a total value based on the stock price on the date they are granted, regardless of the time horizon on which they may be earned. Following are the 10 top-grossing CEOs in 2020, based on Equilar list:
