Angela Ahrendts, the Burberry CEO-turned-Apple retail chief, was the highest-paid woman in the U.S. last year.

She earned $82.4 million in 2014 after she took over the role of Apple’s vice president of retail and online stores, according to an analysis by Bloomberg. The pay figure includes a sign-on bonus and a grant for compensation she wasn’t able to bring along from Burberry. In addition to overseeing the Apple Stores, which are rumored to have a redesign in the works, Ahrendts has been instrumental in the rollout of the Apple Watch.

Trailing Ahrendts on Bloomberg’s list were Oracle Chief Financial Officer Safra Catz, earning $71.2 million, and Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer, who earned $59.1 million.
