The High Pay Centre’s latest report on the pay of British CEOs is out, showing that the chief executives of FTSE 100 firms got paid 183 times what the average Briton did last year.
In the 2014 financial year, the average pay packet ran to £4.96 million ($US8.22 million).
But many are paid much more than that — the HPC lists the top ten, most of whom took home between twice and ten times the average even for their peers.
The dollar salary amounts are converted using HMRC’s average exchange rate figures for the 2014 financial year.
Take a look at who topped the tables last year.
9. Don Robert -- £9.87 million ($16.35 million) -- Robert was CEO of Experian between 2007 and 2014, until his replacement by Brian Cassin.
8. Ian Gorham -- £10.61 million ($17.57 million) Hargreaves Lansdown's share prices have more than doubled since Gorham took over the CEO's job in 2010.
