日产戈恩成日本薪酬最高CEO Nissan’s Ghosn receives $9.5m package
Nissan’s Carlos Ghosn has topped the list of Japan’s best-paid executives after the Japanese automaker revealed on Wednesday that it paid its Brazilian-born chief $9.5m last year.
日本汽车制造商日产(Nissan)周三披露，该公司去年支付给其首席执行官卡洛斯• 戈恩(Carlos Ghosn)的薪酬为950万美元。出生在巴西的戈恩因此登上了日本高管薪酬排行榜榜首。
Mr Ghosn – one of the longest-serving chief executives of a carmaker – took home more than twice the pay of Sir Howard Stringer, Sony’s chairman and chief executive, who made $4.4m in salary and bonuses running the electronics and entertainment group in the financial year that ended in March.
在所有汽车生产商中，戈恩是服务时间最长的首席执行官之一。其去年薪酬比索尼 (Sony) 董事长兼首席执行官霍华德•斯金格爵士(Sir Howard Stringer)高出逾一倍。在截至3月的上个财年，斯金格薪水和奖金共记440万美元。
Under new rules introduced this year, listed companies in Japan must report the compensation of executives earning more than Y100m.
Mr Ghosn’s pay does not include the €1.24m ($1.5m) he made running Renault, Nissan’s French alliance partner, in 2009.
The league table of executive pay is still emerging, as not all Japanese groups have reported yet. But Mr Ghosn is widely expected to remain at the top in a country where senior managers generally earn far less than their counterparts elsewhere.
Fewer than one in 10 Japanese chief executives are believed to make enough to land them on the new disclosure lists.
Before the rule change, Japanese companies were required only to report the pay of directors as a group. As a result, debate about chief executives’ compensation among analysts and the public was hampered by guesswork.
Only a tiny handful of listed Japanese companies have foreign chief executives. All were brought in from outside, and as a result their pay is closer to international averages. However, even Sir Howard’s pay, for example, does not stand out when compared with other executives responsible for Hollywood studios.
Speaking at Nissan’s annual shareholder meeting, Mr Ghosn defended his pay by pointing out that the car industry’s best-paid chief executive – Ford’s Allan Mullaly – made $17.4m last year.
戈恩在日产年度股东大会上为自己的薪酬进行了辩护。他指出全球汽车产业中薪酬最高的首 席执行官——福特(Ford)公司的艾伦•穆拉利(Alan Mulally)——去年的收入为1740万美元。
