An Early Look at the State of U.S. CEO Pay
MARCH 27, 2018
As of March 26, ISS Analytics has collected pay data for 661 “same-store” CEOs within the Russell 3000. Same-store CEOs are those in place for each of the most recent full two fiscal years, and were the only CEO at their respective firms. We focus on these CEOs to gauge the sentiment of compensation committees and how their thinking evolves year-over-year, without clouding the issue with payments to executives around employment start or end events and without bespoke multiple-CEO situations.
