Bob Iger - H 2015

Thomas Staggs, who became COO of the company in February, earned $20 million.

Walt Disney CEO Bob Iger earned $44.9 million in 2015, down a bit from the $46.5 million he earned a year earlier.

In Disney's fiscal year, which ended Oct. 3, Disney stock gained 18 percent.

Iger's pay included his $2.5 million base salary, $22.3 million in non-equity incentives, $8.9 million in stock awards, $8.4 million in option awards and more.

His compensation, along with that of other top Disney executives, was disclosed in a regulatory filing on Wednesday.

Thomas Staggs, who became COO in February, earned $20 million. Staggs is perceived the heir-apparent to Iger, whose contract expires June 30, 2018.

Christine McCarthy, who was named CFO in June, earned $7.1 million, while the executive she replaced, Jay Rasulo, was paid $15.1 million.
