Steve Jobs was compensated $1 for his work as Apple's CEO in 2009, a tradition that has existed since 1997.

Steve Jobs officially made $1 in salary in 2009, continuing a tradition started in 1997. Apple disclosed this information in a preliminary proxy statement sent to its shareholders on Wednesday.

Jobs holds nearly 5.5 million shares of Apple's stock, a position he has held steady since 2003, making his holdings in the company worth over $1 billion. He is also the largest single shareholder in The Walt Disney Co. at 7.4 percent.

Earlier in December, Jobs was named the world's best-performing CEO in the January-Feburary 2010 edition of Harvard Business Review. He was credited with delivering a 3,188% industry-adjusted return since he rejoined the company as CEO in 1997.

Jobs was given the title "CEO of the Decade" by Fortune for his role in turning Apple into a groundbreaking technology leader and "the most valuable company in Silicon Valley." He was also a finalist for Time magazine's 2009 "Person of the Year."

Apple's annual shareholder's meeting is currently scheduled for February 25, 2010.
