Top Executive Compensation in 2008

The higher a company’s earnings, the bigger CEO Pay. In the largest ten percent of companies, CEOS have “skin in the game”—holding almost 100 times their salary in stock. These are a few of the findings from this year’s Top Executive Compensation in 2008 which provides extensive analysis of compensation by industry, revenue, and compensation type for CEOs and the five highest-paid executives. Issues of pay for performance during the recession are likely to take center stage in the upcoming proxy seasons, but information on CEO salaries won’t be revealed until next year’s proxy data is available.
