How Much Does a CEO Earn?
In my last post, I mentioned the recently retired ANZ CEO John McFarlane. Rarely a CEO’s employment contract is published, but here is Mr. McFarlane’s.

Key terms of Mr. McFarlane’s contract extension are:
• a one-year extension to Mr. McFarlane’s existing contract until 30 September 2007
• fixed annual remuneration of $2,000,000
• target variable annual remuneration of $2,000,000 linked to annual performance
• long-term incentives, subject to shareholder approval at ANZ’s 2004 Annual General Meeting, comprising 175,000 Performance Shares. The shares will vest, subject to achieving performance hurdles in the period from 31 December 2006 to 31 December 2009. The total value of the proposed grant is estimated to be $2,500,000.
