Last Friday Disney disclosed that their CEO, Bob Iger, collected $47.5 million in compensation for his role, down from the $65.6 million he received in 2018.
Disney CEO Bob Iger collected $47.5 million in total compensation in 2019, down nearly 28% from the $65.6 million he made in 2018, the company disclosed late Friday in an SEC filing.
According to a proxy statement, Disney paid Iger $3 million in base salary, nearly $30 million in stock and option awards and another $21.8 million in non-equity incentive plan compensation. The 2018 package reflected a one-time incentive that was awarded to Iger after he agreed to stay on as company chief past the date when he had initially announced he would retire.
No other executive got close to Iger’s level in 2019, with CFO Christine McCarthy coming in No. 2 with a total package of just shy of $15 million, up from $11.8 million in 2018.
