FDs among the best paid female executives
Finance directors ranked at the top end of female executive pay rankings
Female finance directors are earning more money than some of their chief
executive counter-parts, the Guardian has revealed in its executive pay survey.
Cairn Energy FD Jann Brown earned £1.9m, which ranked her as the
third-highest paid female executive in the UK. Lloyd’s TSB FD Helen Weir was
ranked 5th with an annual salary of £1.3m.
Rona Fairhead, the FD of Pearson who was subsequently promoted to chief
executive, also faired well with earnings of £1.1m to place her seventh.
The strong performance of the FDs placed them ahead of other high profile
directors, such as Whitbread executive director Angie Risley (£1.2m) and Drax
chief executive Dorothy Thompson (£731,800).
