Who Is New Jersey’s Highest Paid CEO?
We all know that CEOs make a lot of money, and New Jersey's highest-paid CEO reportedly makes nearly $30 million.
So, who is New Jersey's highest-paid CEO? According to Go Banking Rates, it's Johnson and Johnson CEO Alex Gorsky, who pulls in $29.802,564. Let's think about that number for a few seconds.
Let me start by saying that if you're a sports fan, that number doesn't even make you blink. If a football player made that amount of money, and many do, that would work out to a little under $2 million a game, so I guess everything is relative.
But anyway, if you made $29.802,564 a year, you'd be making nearly $2.5 million a month or nearly $575,000 a week. That breaks down to an hourly salary of over $14,000. Yep, that's about $56,000 by lunch based on a 9 to 5 day. Fifty-six grand by lunch. Let that sink in.
By the way, if you're ready to be shocked again, check this out. Gorsky's salary doesn't even get him into the top ten among top CEO salaries for each state. There are actually 11 states whose top-earning CEO makes more. New York tops the list for highest paid CEO. Frank J. Bisignano of First Data Corporation comes in at over $102 million.
Here's one more tidbit for you to think about. The average median household income in New Jersey in 2017 was nearly $73,000, according to statista.com, or the amount of money you'd make by about 2:00 p.m. on the first work day of the year if you made $29,802,564 a year.
