    Pay for performance - let's lead by example. Like most executives, I'm sure that DEO execs are quite comfortably compensated - hard to keep them hungry to stay on task and deliver growth and results, year over year.


    According to this source,, Menezes' take home was the equivalent of $3 MM, his first year as full-blown CEO with the company (based on reduced compensation, having not hit targets). Ability to walk on water might be an attribute worthy of such a compensation package.


    Been a holder of DEO since the GrandMet days, when the SP was in the $30s.


    Wishing the company and investors future success.
