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).
