In today’s Executive Compensation Trends newsletter, we highlighted three new research reports. We’ve segmented our annual Committee Member and Chair Compensation Trends report by the S&P 600 (companies under $500M in revenues), S&P 400 (companies from $500M to $2B in revenues), and S&P 500 (companies over $2B in revenues).
This report compares and analyzes member and chair compensation. Among the key trends we found:
- Median board level comp (cash retainer, equity awards, and total meeting fees) ranged from $107,564 at S&P 600 companies to $190,129 at S&P 500 companies (excluding payment for committee service).
- Across all committees, Governance members had the most tenure.
- Audit committees met most frequently.
- Compensation-committee chair pay at large organizations rose 13.3% from 2006 to 2008, and compensation committee member pay at small organizations increased by 20%.
