The Corporate Library looked at 41 CEOs who voluntarily served without a salary ($1 or less) or a cash bonus, finding that other forms of compensation and stock holdings meant that their forfeiture of salary and bonuses was in many cases purely symbolic. For example, 18 of the CEOs had a combined total of almost $6 billion in stock of the companies at which they are employed.
