The Center On Executive Compensation today announced that Michele A. Carlin, Senior Vice President, Human Resources and Communications for Motorola Solutions, will join the Center and its parent, HR Policy Association, as Executive Vice President, effective August 1, 2014.
The New York Times published its final 2014 executive compensation survey, reporting that the average total pay for the 200 most highly paid executives rose six percent, and while acknowledging "an increase in the proportion of pay based on achieving tangible results," the spotlight was again on outliers and their levels of pay.
The Wall Street Journal and the Associated Press released their annual executive compensation surveys, with both surveys finding on average that pay for large company CEOs did not increase as quickly as shareholder returns.
The 2013 proxy season saw more companies receive higher shareholder support for their say on pay proposals. For S&P 500 companies, the average shareholder support for say on pay was nearly 91%.
Since 2010 there have been only 15 pay ratio related shareholder proposals. These proposals have averaged over 93% shareholder opposition with no single proposal receiving over 10% support.
