Salesforce boss gets big cash boost

Salesforce_Logo_2009The CEO of Salesforce is in the money.

Marc Benioff has been given a 20 percent pay rise meaning that he will earn a trifling $1.44 million.

The board also decided to give Benioff share options amounting to 1.85 million, and the current valuation of those shares is close to $29 million.

Benioff now owns shares worth over $2 billion, so he won’t be short of a bob or three.

The board revealed the pay increase in a regulatory filing but didn’t say what Benioff did to get the extra dosh.
