CEO Median Compensation in 2004 ($14m)

From a USA Today article

CEOs pulled in median compensation of about $14 million in 2004, up 25% from 2003, according to a USA TODAY analysis of the largest public companies filing annual proxies through March 25. Compensation includes salary, bonus, incentives, stock awards, stock-option gains and potential returns from fresh option grants. Data were provided by executive-pay-tracker eComp Data Services.

If you remember from my post on the income reported by President and Vice President, $14 million is greater than both of them put together. Also this means that over half of the CEOs of the largest public companies are in the Top 0.01%.
