So, who is Federico Pignatelli? Federico Pignatelli is the CEO of Biolase, a company based in California that deals with Dental Laser Equipment. You always hear about CEO having a multi-million dollar paycheck every year, and in some instances every few months, but not Mr. Federico Pignatelli. This Chief Executive Officer has made his salary just $1. Why did he do this? He has seen that this year has been very turbulent for the company and the last thing he wants to do is take money from a company already struggling. He believes that this will help the company and put trust back in the company’s shareholders and I couldn’t agree more. Great work Mr. Federico Pignatelli!
