Jack Welch

Overview

When Jack Welch left General Electric (GE) in 2001, after having led the company as its CEO for 20 years, he pocketed the biggest severance payment in history: $417 million.

Even GE doesn't shell out half a billion just like that, but for the manager of the century, sure. GE's value had grown 4000% under Jack's reign. When you take a company that's already worth $12 billion, and increase its worth 40 times, that makes those $417 million seem like peanuts.

Needless to say, the man has a good tip or two about leadership.
