I would not invest in a company that didn't have a leader.The success of a company is not a one-man show, that's why you don't even need a CEO to successfully run a company. And when there's a CEO, since it's not a one-man show, that's why the CEO doesn't deserve a pay of a few million dollars a year.
Prime Minister's salary... less than a million.
Salary of a surgeon saving lives daily... less than a million.
What's so special and unique about a CEO or an athlete justifying multimillions in annual salary?
