A very good year for BSkyB's CEO
Jeremy Darroch took home almost $3.7 milLONDON -- BSkyB CEO Jeremy Darroch took home just under 2 million pounds ($3.7 million) in the fiscal year that ended in June, the company said in its annual report published Wednesday.
Darroch was promoted from CFO in December when former chief executive James Murdoch moved to head up News Corp.'s non-U.S. operations. Murdoch, who remains BSkyB chairman, was paid 1.4 million pounds ($2.6 million) over the year, but his salary as chairman dropped to 75,000 pounds ($137,000) in December.
News Corp. CEO Rupert Murdoch, who was BSkyB chairman until stepping down in December, was paid 32,000 pounds ($59,000) over the period.
