In Pictures: Who are tech’s highest paid CEOs?

Oracle’s Larry Ellison finally ousted from the top spot on our list of highest paid tech execs. We count them down from 50 to 1. (All figures in $US)

Meg Whitman, HP CEO and president

In her first six weeks at the helm of HP, Whitman netted a $16.5 million pay package, including her $1 salary, option awards valued at $16.1 million, and perks and other compensation worth $372,598. Whitman’s predecessor, Leo Apotheker, lasted just 11 months as HP’s CEO but departed with a pay package worth nearly double ($30.4 million) the value of Whitman’s compensation. Whitman was named HP’s CEO in September of last year, just weeks before the close of the company’s 2011 fiscal year on Oct. 31.
