Facebook's new chief operating officer has officially taken over from Sheryl Sandberg, and we're giving you a look at how much the company veteran has been paid over the years.
1. Javier Olivan is Facebook's new $35 million man. Olivan, a Facebook veteran, was tapped earlier this summer to replace Sheryl Sandberg as COO. While his full compensation agreement has not yet been disclosed, Olivan's received big grants of stock units — here's what we know so far:
Olivan has been with Facebook since 2007, spending almost all of that time in VP-level roles. This month, he became the company's COO.
In what appears to be Olivan's first disclosure with the Securities and Exchange Commission as a Facebook exec, his most recent grants of restricted stock are laid out. Though all of Facebook's officers make under $1 million a year, grants of RSUs are much more generous.
Since 2019, Olivan has received 198,271 in RSUs, according to a recent SEC filing. At Facebook's current stock price, of just under $180, that makes those awards worth more than $35 million.
