Median CEO pay passes $10 million
The rise in CEO pay can largely be attributed to the strong performance of stocks in the past 12 months. Because executive compensation is increasingly tied to company performance, the success of the S&P index resulted in the stock component of executive compensation packages propelling median CEO pay above the $10 million threshold.
With bigger money on the table via stock options grants and performance rewards, it is becoming increasingly important to keep up with and understand the labyrinth of CEO pay.
