Highest Paid CEOs in the World And Their Net worth 2022



The CEO is the highest-ranking executive in an organisation and is responsible for making the most critical decisions, overseeing the other executives, and serving as the company’s public face.

The board of directors selects the CEO and, if the business was founded from scratch, is typically the founder.

Interestingly, some of the highest-paid CEOs have a take-home higher than the earnings of more than 21 national economies.

Like regular people, some of them, like Elon Musk, are wealthy CEOs and incredibly well-known superstars, while others are less well-known. However, they all have one thing in common: they make millions, if not billions, of dollars yearly.
