Idaho CEOs Got Ha-huge ‘14 Raises

There are 570 chief executive officers in Idaho, and the middle-range salary is about $107,000 a year. But that’s much less than Idaho’s publicly traded companies pay their top executives. Men and women who run companies whose shares trade publicly on major stock exchanges are required to disclose their pay. Last year brought change to Idaho’s corporate landscape, with two of the highest-paid CEOs J. LaMont Keen of IdaCorp and Thomas E. Carlile of Boise Cascade — retiring or getting ready to retire and succeeded by lower-paid chief executives. Compensation generally was much higher than in 2013, with several high-performing CEOs receiving double-digit raises. The median raise was 37 percent. The median Idahoan made $14.93 an hour last year, up 25 cents from a year earlier — a raise of 1.7 percent/Audrey Hutton, Zach Kyle & Bill Roberts, Idaho Statesman. More here.
