Gutiérrez, who replaces longtime counsel Alan Braverman, will receive a $2 million signing bonus on top of an annual salary of $1.3 million. Additionally, he is entitled to an annual incentive bonus of 200% of his salary, and an annual equity award worth 500% of his annual salary, according to Law360.

Gutiérrez’ current contract runs from February 1 of this year through December 31, 2024, according to SEC filings. He previously worked at Microsoft for over seventeen years before moving to Spotify, where he helped argue last year that Apple was an anti-competitive monopoly through their App Store service.

  1. But they can’t pay in-park cast members more than minimum wage? I’m a conservative and support the capitalist model, but this is just disgusting (having been a CM for two years before leaving the company). No human is worth that much knew while other employees live in squalor and poverty.
