In the competition to fill top positions, some companies will pay whatever it takes to get their ideal candidate into the CEO’s chair. Coca-Cola recently created a stir with its new stock option plan, which equates to a dramatic pay increase for Coke’s top executives. While the plan passed, it was controversial and continues to draw investor criticism. Warren Buffett called it “excessive”—yet declined to vote against it—and shareholders who voted for it represented fewer than half of the company’s outstanding shares. Is there a culture of excessive executive pay in corporate America, or are highly paid CEOs earning their keep?
Join us at our next Spotlight Series discussion on June 3 to find out whether companies and shareholders are getting what they pay for.
