Private-equity bosses enjoyed another bumper year in 2012, with nine execs receiving over $1B combined in dividends and salary packages. Blackstone's (BX) Stephen Schwarzman took home $213.3M , Apollo's (APO) Leon Black $125.5M, and KKR's (KKR) Henry Kravis and George Roberts $137M each. It probably helps that P-E firms are considered LPs, so don't have to have compensation committees.
