Nick Woodman has unseated Cheniere Energy's top dog.
GoPro CEO Nick Woodman is now reportedly the highest-paid CEO in the U.S.
The billionaire, who founded the extreme sports camera-manufacturer, received 4.5 million restricted stock units with a valuation of $284.5 million to finish 2014, according to Bloomberg.
With that compensation, Woodman takes over the top spot from Cheniere Energy CEO Charif Souki who received $281 million to finish 2013. In 2014, the company reported docking the CEO’s pay, making Woodman the number-one CEO in terms of pay.
The ranking, the Bloomberg Pay Index, “values an executive’s awarded pay package at the company’s fiscal year-end closing price,” according to the article.
In February, GoPro notched $634 million in quarterly revenue, a 75% boost year-over-year after going public in 2014. Analysts predicted revenue of $580 million. The company also said COO Nina Richardson would leave the company.
