TiKTok star Charli D’Amelio earns more than many American CEOs

Having a talent and exploiting it on social networks can guarantee a professional life with a lot of money. Nowadays TikTok stars like Charli D’Amelio are making more dollars than many of America’s top CEOspublished The Wall Street Journal.

According to the information the median salary for CEOs of S&P 500 companies was $13.4 million in 2020.

While Charli D’Amelio, who started posting videos of herself dancing on TikTok in 2019, pocketed $17.5 million last yearaccording to Forbes’ count of the top-earning TikTok stars of 2021.

D’Amelio ranks very well among the top earning TikTok stars of 2021 thanks to his million followers who are fans of his clothing line, products that he promotes on the social network of short videos and other ads.

An analysis of MyLogIQ data from the Wall Street Journal notes that the median salary for US CEOs was $13.4 million in 2020. The figures include stock and option awards, which typically make up the bulk of executive pay, as well as annual salary and bonuses, perks and some types of retirement benefits.

It is important to note that so far, only a few CEO compensation figures have been published for 2021, however the 2020 reference is valid and recent for comparison.

Even Charli D’Amelio earned more in 2021 than Apple CEO Tim Cook did in 2020, when he earned $14.8 million. Although the income of the Apple leader went to the clouds because in 2021 he obtained close to $ 100 million, a figure that the influencer has not yet reached.

Either way, D’Amelio earns more than several CEOs of large publicly traded companies:

Darren Woods of Exxon Mobil Corp., received $15.6 million dollars (2020)

Kevin Johnson of Starbucks Corp., raised $14.7 million

Ed Bastian of Delta Air Lines Inc. added $13.1 million

Chris Kempczinski of McDonald’s Corp., $10.8 million

For Dixie D’Amelio, Charli’s older sister, who barely has half the followers, things weren’t so bad, as she was the second biggest TikTok winner last year, according to Forbes, having raised $10 million dollars.

What Dixie earns is similar to the pay that Southwest Airlines Co. CEO Gary Kelly receives.
