U.S. CEO pay jumped nearly 9% in '06

American chief executive officers saw their total direct compensation - an executive pay measure including salary, bonus and incentive shares - rise 8.9 percent in 2006, a private study showed Monday. The study by consulting company Mercer found that CEOs' pay was linked more to performance than in recent years, driven in part by strong corporate results and shareholders returns.

The median total direct compensation for executives at the 350 companies surveyed - total direct compensation plus benefits and perquisites - rose to $6.5 million, according to Mercer's study.

Net income at the companies surveyed increased by an average of 14.4 percent for the period, up from 13 percent in 2005, Mercer said. Total shareholder return at the companies was 15.1 percent, more than double the 6.8 percent return in 2005.

"The big story this year is that, as predicted, long-term incentives are being linked to performance," Mercer said in its study, based on the reports of 350 large U.S. companies.
