ConocoPhillips (COP) CEO Ryan Lance received ~$19.3M in total compensation in 2012 following his ascension to the top spot, a nice raise from the $5.9M he received in 2011 as senior VP of exploration and production. COP says increased base pay levels for Lance and several execs "are linked to their expanded leadership roles following the spinoff."

  • Stupid me! With the spinoff I would think it should be contracted rather than expanded leadership roles.

  • I guess owners of the company count for less than the vaunted leaders.

  • Just think of the how many people could be hired to help keep equipment maintained and production up. I worked in one of their refineries for 39years and the focus like too many corps are all about making exec's billionaires (not millionaires).

  • One of the reasons the retail investor does not trust Wall Street and Washington regulators is the unbridled greed of executives who dismiss their fiduciary relationship.


    It is simply horrific that the authorities allow executives and obsequious Boards of Directors to loot shareholder funds with impunity and not serve prison terms like common criminals. Particularly for public corporations this is simply well-orchestrated white collar crime.
