Even though social and mobile game maker Zynga's stock has declined 21 percent in the last six month, that hasn't stopped its new CEO from collecting his heft salary this year. According to this CNBC report, Zynga CEO Don Mattrick earned a total of $57.8 million at Zynga this year.
Mattrick has been working on turning the company's fortunes around as it continues to transition from relying on social networks like its own portal and Facebook to mobile platforms. The information about Mattrick's payout for the year came of an annual shareholders meeting held this week.
Prior to joining Zynga this year, Mattrick worked for Microsoft. Before that, Electronic Arts.
