Eddy Cue

A restricted stock unit (RSU), is a form of compensation valued in terms of company stock, but the stock is not issued at the time of the grant. Currently, the stock is worth $37.4 million.

In addition, he has submitted an SEC Form 3 with the SEC. This document shows what stock and options Cue holds as a senior vice president of Apple.

Cue has worked at Apple for 22 years and helped to create the first version of the company’s online store back in 1998. He also had a hand in building the iTunes Music Store, which launched in 2003, and the App Store, which debuted on the iPhone in 2008.

Last month, Apple awarded their new CEO Tim Cook 1,000,000 RSU which will vest over the next 10 years.
