- The top of big companies must do it with millions of less rewards. Listed directors in the British FTSE, including Shell topman Ben van Beurden, lost a fifth of income last year.
On average, they earned 17% less, up to £ 4.5 million.
According to market researcher CIPD, this is under pressure from shareholders. They increasingly emphasize that the reward should be in line with business performance. In particular, the reward for topman Martin Sorrell of WPP advertising and marketing giant wrecked wreck.
He remained the best-selling CEO of all London listed companies with £ 48 million.
That was a slurry: the year before, WPP wrote £ 70 million on his account.
On the list for The City is also topman Erik Engstrom of data processor RELX (formerly Reed Elsevier) with £ 10. 56 million.
Ben Van Beurden of Royal Dutch Shell listed in London and Amsterdam received £ 6.92 million.
