Viacom senior executive vice president and chief financial officer Richard Bressler received a $5.5 million bonus last year.
This was certainly no surprise to the executive or to other followers of the media giant. Bressler, who joined the company in March 2001 and became CFO two months later, has received the same bonus for three straight years now. In his first year, he was awarded a bonus of “only” $5 million — but he wasn’t at Viacom for the entire 12 months.
Bressler was also paid a salary of more than $1.1 million last year, bringing his full pay package to nearly $6.7 million.
Foot Locker executive vice president and chief financial officer Bruce Hartman earned a little more than $2 million. This includes $307,500 in restricted stock, which he did not receive the prior year, and $646,533 in long-term incentive payouts, which were for the 2001-2003 performance period.
