A terrible CEO.
Sues his own company, runs them to the ground, takes his employees money then fires them.

But does he deserve them?


The people that matter think he does.


The people that matters loves when he talks about focusing on franchises that "have the potential to be exploited every year on every platform with clear sequel potential and have the potential to become $100 million franchises".


So?

65?!

I'm quite disgusted actually.


A vast majority of that is stock awards. It's not readily accessible cash.


Regardless, this man has been awarded those stocks for the things he has done.


He earned them.


^ This...As much as I dislike where the CoD franchise has gone, it has flourished under him due to brilliant marketing.

To be fair, the money that has come in under his watch, is greatly higher than that 65million figure...It is proportionate to the profits & the meeting of market expectations of the products that have been put out underneath his watch. It only seems as if it is "Sickingly overpaid" because you don't have the opportunity (or more accurately, privilege) of looking at the financial records of Activision and how much profit they have made. The same could be said about sports athletes as well...The more fans are willing to buy the game, the more money the company makes, and the more they will compensate him. The same with sports, the more people pay for a ticket, pay for concessions, pay for parking, etc..the more they will pay athletes.
