2013 Fruitful For Idaho CEOs

The median raise for the chief executives of Idaho’s publicly traded companies was 12 percent in each company’s latest fiscal year. Only one CEO among the nine took a pay cut. When compared with overall Idaho employee pay, the CEOs came out way ahead. Idaho workers’ median hourly wage rose by half a percent in 2013. The median hourly pay for all Idaho CEOs, across all industries, went up by 5.5 percent between 2012 and 2013. The national average for CEO raises in total compensation was 5 percent to 5.5 percent, according to compensation consultant Steven Hall, founding partner and managing director of Steven Hall & Partners in New York. Idaho’s publicly traded companies generally are in line with a national trend toward tying top executives’ pay to long-term performance/Idaho Statesman. More here.

Question: When did you get a 12 percent raise?
