Legg Mason CEO’s Salary Declines for the 3rd Successive Year

Zacks
Per the proxy filled by Legg Mason, Inc. (LM) on Jun 14, its CEO Joseph A. Sullivan’s compensation for fiscal 2017 has been reduced by nearly 12%. This marks thethird consecutive year ofdecline in his salary.
Sullivan’s pay package of $8.93 million included $0.5 million base salary with cash bonus of $3.32 million. The decline is mainly due to lower stock and option award. The stock award amounted to $3.32 million while option awards were $1.66 million, down 21% from the previous year.
The Baltimore-based investment manager reported profits for fiscal 2017 as against loss incurred in the previous year. Despite that, its many top executives have seen pay cuts, as the compensation committee feels that the company has still not reached the previous performance mark.
