CEO payday: What tech's top execs made in '09

The recession took its toll on pay for tech CEOs, but not everyone lost value.

Sanjay Jha, who heads Motorola's mobile devices and home business, was awarded a compensation package valued at $3.8 million in 2009. That's just a fraction of what he was awarded in 2008, when his pay package was valued at $104.4 million thanks to an enormous sign-on bonus. In 2009 Jha received a $905,769 salary, $1.2 million cash bonus, $1.3 million in stock and option awards, and $323,366 in perks and other compensation. Meanwhile, Motorola's revenue for its fiscal year ended Dec. 31 totaled $22 billion (down 27% from $30.1 billion in 2008). Its net loss was $51 million (compared with a net loss of $4.2 billion in 2008).
