Compensation

Median CEO compensation is 4.6 percent of revenue

Data skewed by large number of smaller groups where pay is proportionally greater; but even some major groups pay CEOs more. “If you’re good, don’t be afraid to ask for what you think is just compensation,” Air Conditioning Contractors of America CEO Paul Stalknecht said. "But (CEOs) also have to be respectful of the size of the organization and its ability to pay. If you have a $1 million budget, asking for $700,000 is crazy."
