15 Highest-Paid MedTech CEOs In the U.S. (slideshow)

2013 was a good year for public medtech companies. This chart shows why . So how did CEOs fare last year? When it comes to annual compensation, who comprises the medtech world's 1%?

We researched MD+DI's Top 40 Medical Device Companies, including only U.S-based medtech companies, and then scoured data from FindtheBest and, in some cases, company proxy statements to come up with the list of 15 highest-paid medtech CEOs in the country.

The results are interesting because in many cases CEOs of firms such as Danaher that have more than a billion in revenue from medtech but pull in much more from other industry segments ended up ranking higher on the list with a larger compensation than CEOs of pure-play device firms like Medtronic. And then, not surprisingly, CEOs of diversified firms like General Electric and Johnson & Johnson also did better than other medtech CEOs.

Without further ado, here are the top 15 highest-paid medtech CEOs in the U.S, starting with no.15 on the list. Drumroll please...
