WPP CEO Mark Read earned almost £2.6 million ($3.3 million) last year, the company’s annual report showed.

His pay package included £975,000 salary, £1.3 million in short-term incentive, and £71,000 in long-term incentives.

WPP’s net sales fell 1.6% in 2019, the third year in a row of decline, but its share price rose from about 850p to over £10 last year. The stock has slumped again this year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Read’s short-term bonus was 55% of the maximum potential last year. The long-term incentive paid out only 15% of the maximum because WPP’s revenues and share price have tumbled over a five-year period.

Martin Sorrell, who was chief executive for 32 years until April 2018, continues to receive payouts from long-term incentives and collected £517,000 worth of shares.

The annual report also revealed for the first time the composition of WPP’s 19-strong executive committee, which Read set up to improve the management of the group. Under Sorrell, WPP did not have an executive committee or management board.

“The executive committee of WPP is responsible for leading the company and executing its strategy,” the report said, explaining that its members lead WPP’s largest operating companies and central corporate functions.
