Mickey Mouse Brings CEO $31.4 Million

The board of the Walt Disney Company said CEO Rober Iger deserved to be the Lion King because 90% of his compensation was based on incentives he earned. The Burbank, Calif. entertainment giant reached record profits last year.

Based on SEC filings, Iger earned a base salary of only $2 million and stock awards of another $8 million, according to the Los Angeles Times. He also received $4.8 million in stock options and a $15.5 million bonus.

The Times also reported “Alan Braverman, Disney’s general counsel, collected total compensation of $6.9 million last year, an increase of 3% over 2010.  Kevin Mayer, the head of strategic planning, saw a 15% cut in his total compensation, which dropped to $3.6 million for the year. The company’s chief financial officer, Jay Rasulo, received $9.9 million for the year, a gain of 2.5%.”

    I’ve had this feeling over the last week that Iger was etntigg ready to step down. Something about his actions over the past few months just seems like he’s been etntigg his ducks in order. Personally I’d like to see them bring someone from outside the company as new CEO. Possibly someone from the Marvel or Pixar side of the family would be interesting. As for Jay Rasulo or Tom Staggs. Please god no.
