15 Highest-Paid Medtech CEOs in America

15 Highest-Paid Medtech CEOs in America
Here's MD+DI's annual review of the highest-paid CEOs in the U.S. Many executives retained their spot though there was a shift at the top.

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 annual reports  to come up with the list of 15 highest-paid medtech CEOs in the country.

The data is based on compensation each executive earned in 2014. 

There has been some changes in the list since we reported last year, most notably at the no. 1 spot. Also, while Medtronic is no longer a U.S. company, the compensation for Omar Ishrak, the company's CEO, is included in the list since last year the company was still domiciled in the United States. 

Here is a slideshow of the richest medtech CEOs, in ascending order.
