BlackBerry is struggling financially but the company’s chief executive officer is not.
BlackBerry head John Chen is highest-paid CEO in Canada, according to the most recent annual ranking by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives.
Chen earned a total just shy of $90 million in 2014, the ranking’s most recent data year. The average CEO in the top 100 earned less than $9 million, which is already 184 times the average salary in Canada.
In total, Canada’s top 100 CEOs earned nearly $1 billion in 2014. Only two of the hundred were women.
