"It simply came to our notice then Facebook and, therefore, the negative feeling about our company is directly related and often passed on to Mr. Zuckerberg", Says a company representative about the role of CEO Facebook.
The annual review of the company's security programs showed that its protection costs Zuckerberg and his family increased in 2020 mainly due to travel protocols for COVID-19, increased security coverage during the 2020 US election period, and increased costs for security personnel.
The CEO also received an additional $ 10 million for security personnel and other security costs. The cost of basic insurance was $ 13,4 million last year, compared to $ 10,4 million the previous year.
"The Compensation, Appointments and Governance Committee believes that these costs are appropriate and necessary given the threatening landscape and the fact that Mr. Zuckerberg he asked to receive only $ 1 in annual salary and does not receive bonus payments, shares or any other incentive compensation ", according to the statement.
Also in the statement filed on Friday, the Facebook said it would submit a proposal to its shareholders' meeting on May 26 to offer personal security to directors from time to time, which it deems necessary because of the "ongoing scrutiny our directors face as a result of their service on the board."
