Skift examined the financial filings of publicly listed hotel companies and came up with a list of the top 10 hospitality CEO pay packages of 2014, ranging from top-earner Wynn Resorts CEO Steve Wynn’s $25.3 million to Choice Hotel’s CEO Stephen Joyce’s $5.3 million at number 10.
Most hotel CEOs saw bigger pay packages in 2014 with the exception of MGM Resorts CEO James Murren’s small decrease of $800,000. Wynn’s total compensation package increased a whopping 29.2% to $25.3 million.
There’s been some shake-up in the list of most highly compensated CEOs since Skift first compiled the list last year. Wynn was still the overall top-earning hospitality CEO in 2014 but the CEOs of Starwood, Marriott and Wyndham all earned more than the Las Vegas Sands and MGM Resorts’ CEOs who were third and fourth, respectively in 2013. The CEOs of Marriott and Wyndham each collected more than $14 million in total compensation.
