Sharp fall in CEO salaries

Newly appointed chief executives in WA are on substantially lower salary packages compared with recent years, a Business News survey has found. 

The median salary for newly appointed chief executives in Western Australia has fallen to $250,000 per annum, down from $295,000 last year and more than $320,000 the year before that.

The latest figure is based on a survey of 36 chief executives who are either newly appointed or whose companies have listed on the ASX over the past four months.
