Burberry CEO First Woman To Become The Highest-Paid Executive In Britain

Not only is she Britain's highest-paid executive, but she's an American! (Sorry. A bit of Yankee pride trickled out.) With an annual salary of £16.9 million, Angela Ahrendts' pay package is almost £5 million more than the next-highest-paid British executive, according to The Guardian. (That's about $26.34 million U.S.) Despite Ahrendts' position as one of few women at the top of a corporate ladder, she has opposed potential policy changes that could help other British women get there. Ahrendts said last year that she isn't in favor of quotas that would mandate a certain number of women be present on company boards, according to The Telegraph. Story
