Post-Gazette's Fortunate 50
You already know the region's top 50 highest compensated public company executives get paid more than you do, but here are the details.
Total compensation for the Pittsburgh region's top 50 highest compensated public company executives rose 11% in 2018, driven primarily by strong corporate profits and meeting other short-term financial goals set by company boards, according to a Post-Gazette analysis of company filings. Even as stock prices fell on global market and trade concerns, companies still performed well enough to justify a 45% increase in short-term incentive pay in 2018. Incentive pay made up about a fifth of the compensation for Pittsburgh-area executives.
