Data source: The source of the data is the proxy statement which is available for publicly traded companies only. Please note that in most cases the proxy statement identifies the five highest paid officers only. It is possible that officers ranked below the top five within their institution may have compensation that would rank them among the top 50 listed above. Annual compensation is the annual cash-equivalent compensation paid to the executive. It includes base salary, annual bonus, and other annual compensation. Total compensation is annual compensation plus long-term compensation. Long-term compensation includes annual cash, stock, or performance unit awards paid or credited during the fiscal year in accordance with multiyear performance goals. This includes restricted stock awards, long-term incentive awards whether paid in cash or stock (but not stock options), and other long-term compensation.
