Apple's New Corporate Controller Luca Maestri Receives Stock Rights Worth $15 Million

luca_maestriFormer Xerox CFO Luca Maestri officially joined Apple as Corporate Controller in late February and a filing with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission published earlier today reveals that he received 38,091 restricted stock units (RSUs) in March of this year.

As with most RSUs handed out by Apple, these carry staggered vesting dates with 1/8 of the total number of units converting to actual shares every six months over a four year period.

Apple's restricted stock grants are often issued as incentives to stay with the company because the shares vest over time and require employees to remain employed through each vesting date.

At Apple's current stock price, Maestri's RSUs are worth approximately $15 million, but that total will shift depending on the stock price at the time that the shares vest.

In his role as Corporate Controller, Maestri works directly under Apple senior vice president and Chief Financial Officer Peter Oppenheimer. Before serving as CFO at Xerox, Maestri formerly worked at Nokia Siemens Networks and GM.

Hooray. Another fat cat gets stock worth $15 MILLION for sitting on his lazy arse while 90% of everyone else in the country makes $7 an hour working theirs off. That is a newsworthy RUMOR? :rolleyes:

Do you have any idea how much time and hard work as well as study it takes to get to this point in a career like his? Sorry if you were too LAZY to apply yourself when it counted, but this is money he's earned, and calling him "another fat cat" is just an easy way for people to make excuses for their own lack of initiative.

You are either too naive, or expect others to be naive. Plenty of people put in "hard work and study", the royal road to such echelons though is via arse kissing, back stabbing and ruthlessness.

Salaries and stock options aren't given as some sort of gold star for prior efforts; they are given as an advance on future contributions to the company.

At least in theory. In practice, it's a elite boy's club of rich people giving other rich people money for not working any harder, and often less hard, than employees lower on the totem pole.
