The Highest-Paid Woman in Corporate America Is A CFO

Who was the highest-paid female executive in the U.S. last year? Perhaps PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi comes to mind? Or Yahoo chief executive Marissa Mayer? While they feature prominently in the top 10 list of highest-compensated female executives, pole position was held by Safra Ada Catz, Oracle CFO and President, according to Find the Best research.

Catz earned $44.3 million last year, according to this data. The Israel-born executive is #24 on the Forbes 2014 Power Women list.

We still question the lack of female CEOs in America, but perhaps a better question to ask is how many female executives in total, at American companies?
