To say Nike had an impressive fiscal 2014 year, which ended on May 31, would be an understatement. The Swoosh absolutely crushed it last year.
According to year-end financial reports posted on The Wall Street Journal, Nike's revenue increased by 10 percent to $27.8 billion, while net income was also up by 10 percent to $2.7 billion.
For this type of performance, you better believe that Nike CEO Mark Parker earned himself a fat paycheck. According to the Portland Business Journal, Parker's compensation for the year is valued at $14.7 million. This includes an annual salary of $1.5 million, $3.5 million in stock awards, $2.5 million in stock options, and a $6.5 million bonus.
For all the work Parker's put in to developing Nike into the leading brand it is today, the man's obviously earned every penny of it.
