Credit Suisse - Brady Dougan Does OK

Pot Of Gold

Credit Suisse raised total compensation for CEO Brady Dougan by 34% for 2012, a year when net income declined.

Bloomberg reports that Dougan’s pay of $8.2m included fixed salary of $2.64m, $3.17m in short-term and $2.11m in long-term variable compensation, Credit Suisse said Friday in its annual report.

The bank paid Dougan $6.15m for 2011.

The highest-paid member on Credit Suisse’s executive board was Robert Shafir, who currently co-heads the private banking and wealth management division. He earned $11.2m for 2012 compared with total pay of $8.99m for 2011.

Dougan said in an interview this month that pay for bankers is still outpacing shareholder returns, a dynamic that will change once the bank completes an overhaul of its business model.

'In the past few years, certainly, the shareholders have taken a bigger reduction in their returns than labor has within the business model', Dougan, 53, said in the interview with Bloomberg Television’s Erik Schatzker. 'That’s not sustainable. That’s not right'.
