Sky boss gets £5m in pay and bonuses
Sky has revealed boss Jeremy Darroch landed almost £5m in pay and bonuses for the past year just weeks after he scooped a near £40m windfall following the Comcast takeover.
The pay TV giant’s annual report shows its chief executive was paid £4.96m, including a 2.5 per cent salary rise to £1.07m for the year to the end of June, which has since been hiked again to £1.1m.
His pay package also includes a £1.9m annual bonus on top of pensions and benefits, as well as £1.8m worth of shares under the group’s co-investment plan. Those shares made up part of Mr Darroch’s bumper payout following the £30bn takeover by Comcast.
