Lloyd Blankfein Made a Fortune Last Year
God's favorite investment banker, Goldman Sachs chief Lloyd Blankfein, made a shitload of money last year! Originally we thought he made $13.2 million in 2010 but, according to Bloomberg News today, it turns out he nearly doubled his 2009 take with a $19 million compensation package:
The total includes $5.4 million in cash, $12.6 million in restricted stock, a $600,000 salary and about $464,000 in other benefits, the New York-based firm's proxy statement showed. Blankfein's $9.8 million pay for 2009 included $9 million in restricted stock plus salary and other compensation.
It's not exactly surprising, but still! Nice work, Lloyd.
