Compensation for chief executive officers increased substantially in 2021 after small or negative growth in 2020 and 2019. That’s one major takeaway from Gallagher’s CEO and Executive Compensation Trends: 2022 Edition, an annual report that this year provides a baseline for assessing the pandemic’s impact on executive compensation.

The report includes compensation data from 2,845 companies and covers compensation for CEOs, named executive officers (NEOs), and chief financial officers (CFOs).
