AMD's Lisa Su is the first woman to receive the top spot in the Associated Press's annual CEO compensation ranking.
Su's motivation package for 2019 was valued at $ 58.5 million, thanks to the company's high share price, which is an excellent indicator of her performance as CEO over five years.
The average remuneration for women on this list was $ 13.9 million versus $ 12.3 million for men. Women's wages increased by an average of 2.3% compared to last year. The median change for men was 5.4%.
In addition, women are still significantly less represented as CEOs in the S&P 500, accounting for only 5% of the list. The list includes only 20 women, while there are 309 men.
Of course, the salary figures for 2019 refer to the period before the coronavirus pandemic arrived. Hundreds of CEOs have already announced that they will give up some or all of their salaries. In turn, shocks in the stock market and the global economy could make it even harder for CEOs to meet their performance targets this year.
