Comcast bosses among highest-paid in corporate America

With millions more in the pipeline

Comcast bosses among highest-paid in corporate America

As the Inquirer noted last week, Comcast paid chief operating officer Stephen B. Burke $34 million last year, while ceo and lead shareholder Brian Roberts collected $27 million, with millions more in the pipeline.

That would rank the Comcast bosses 2nd and 3d among all U.S. corporate executives, behind Occidental Petroleum boss Ray Irani but ahead of Walt Disney boss Robert Iger, IBM boss Samuel Palmisano, and everybody else, if Burke and Roberts had been included in the annual Hay Group/Wall Street Journal executive compensation study published here on 1 April.
