Alan Mulally[1]Documents filed with regulators on Tuesday by Ford (NYSE:F[2]) revealed that its CEO received enormous bonuses for the automaker’s performance last year[3].

Alan Mulally received 909,179 shares of Ford stock worth about $11.7 million at its current share price. The shares will vest in March 2015, but roughly 45% of them will cover taxes, Reuters noted.

Additionally, the company granted Mulally options on 745,526 shares for 2013. In order for him to realize a gain on those options, the stock price must remain above $12.75 a share.

It’s been a good week for Mulally. Another 543,734 shares that he was awarded in 2010 became fully vested this week. Those shares are currently valued at $7 million.

The company has not yet disclosed Mulally’s compensation package for 2012. Last year, he received $5.5 million in cash and a $2 million annual salary.

For 2012, Ford posted earnings of $5.7 billion, its fourth consecutive annual profit. In January, the company announced that it planned to hire 2,200 workers this year[4].

Shares of Ford dipped fractionally in Thursday morning trading.
