Paul Maritz, VMware CEO
VMware more than doubled its profits in 2011 and grew revenue by 32%, yet Maritz saw his compensation cut by more than half. He received a $750,000 salary and $815,625 bonus, but no equity awards (in 2010 his package included stock awards valued at $3.9 million). VMware's revenue for 2011 hit $3.8 billion compared to $2.9 billion in 2010. Net income was $724 million compared to $357 million in 2010.
