Compensation

Million-dollar CEOs profit from ‘limited supply’ of talent

CEO Update’s analysis of compensation at the largest groups found 73 top executives earned base plus bonus pay of $1 million or more in fiscal years 2012 or 2013. If retirement plan payments and other compensation are included, the number grows to 90 members of the million-plus club. For the very largest trade associations, paying the CEO $1 million “was a barrier they went through some time ago,” said Brian Vogel, a nonprofit compensation consultant.

Trade groups are bright spot in pay for top female CEOs

Analysis shows women at professional societies earn lower median pay than men, but women tend to lead smaller organizations. Female trade group CEOs had a higher median base and bonus than men despite running smaller groups. However, men still had greater total earnings, largely from retirement plan payouts.
