The is a follow up article on CNNMoney.com regarding Ken Chenault and America Express. The article is called American Express CEO Gets Big Pay Boost.
Here is a link to my prior post:
AmEx Pays Ken Chenault After They Pay Their Shareholders
I pulled some stats from the CNNMoney article:
Compensated $53.2 million in 2007
Compensated $27.3 million in 2006
Of the 2007 $53.2 million, $42.8 million was rewarded as stock awards for performance in 2007 and a special incentive stock option grant, so this still must be realized against the stipulations.
This is in comparison to 2006 when Chenault’s performance netted stock awards valued at $16.9 million
