EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION — The Industry’s High Rollers

These are the executives that have rolled the dice and hit for the big money in commercial printing. Printing Impressions’ 13th annual executive compensation report highlights the industry’s top money earners at publicly held printing companies.

Robert G. Burton, president and CEO of Bannockburn, IL-based Moore Corp., appears at the top of this year’s ranking with total compensation of $3,300,000. This is the second straight year a Moore executive tops our list.

The rankings indicate previous fiscal year salaries, most recent fiscal year wages and the percentage change in compensation from the two fiscal years that are shown.

While some executives, like Dennis Rediker, president and CEO of Standard Register, saw their total compensation go up several hundred thousand dollars, others, like Robert Johnson of Bowne & Co., saw their annual salary take a nose dive.

This information is derived directly from the most recent proxy statements of publicly held U.S. and Canadian (where available) printing firms.

Printing Impressions used base salaries and listed cash bonuses to establish compensation levels. We do not include any stock options, which may or may not have been exercised, or stock payouts. Note that these options may increase total yearly earnings greatly.
