132 top CEOs now have a median salary of $1 million a month ' here are the CEOs whose pay has been most wildly out of sync with company performance

Published by Business Insider on Mon, 18 Mar 2019


A Wall Street Journal analysis found the median salary for 132 CEOs in the S&P 500 was $12.4 million in 2018.A report from As You Sow, a nonprofit focused on shareholder advocacy, ranked the 25 CEOs on the S&P 500 who have earned a salary that's higher than expected, given shareholder return.As You Sow also calculated the ratio of CEO pay to median employee pay.Ronald F. Clarke, CEO of Fleetcor Technologies Inc., took the top spot: He made about $53 million a year in 2017, which means he was overpaid by 263%.Most CEOs make a lot of money. No surprise there.A Wall Street Journal analysis found the median salary for 132 CEOs in the S&P 500 was $12.4 million in 2018, up from $11.7 million in 2017.In fact, the typical CEO made a whopping 312 times their median employees' salary in 2017, according to the Economic Policy Institute.But some chief executives earn salaries that are seemingly disproportionate to their company's shareholder returns. A 2019 report from As You Sow, a nonprofit focused on shareholder advocacy, ranks the most "overpaid" leaders on the S&P 500.To figure out who's overpaid, As You Sow calculated the ratio of CEO pay in 2017 to total shareholder return at each company, as well as the companies where the most shares were voted against the CEO pay package (the first ratio was weighted double).Ronald F. Clarke, CEO of Fleetcor Technologies Inc., which makes corporate payment products, took the No. 1 spot. According to the analysis, Clarke is overpaid by 263%. His expected pay based on Fleetcor's performance is $14,483,985; his actual pay in 2017 was $52,643,810. Per the report, 86% of shareholders voted against Clarke's pay package.Because there was a change in CEO at a few companies (Oracle Corp., The Walt Disney Co., TransDigm Group, Inc., and Discovery, Inc.), the salary of the higher-paid CEO was counted.Below, we've listed the 25 most overpaid CEOs according to As You Sow, as well as each of their salaries, the median employee salary at their company, and the pay ratio.Read more: A new study found CEOs at America's biggest companies raked in $19 million on average last year, while workers' pay barely budged25.
