2017 BRISBANE TOP COMPANIES: HIGHEST PAID CEOS

CEO SALARIES are a controversial issue with shareholders, employees and the general public and it now generates considerable media coverage in the mainstream organisations.

The controversy over Australia Post CEO Ahmed Fahour's $5.6 million salary prompted Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull to warn against a "cult of excessive CEO remuneration".

Michael Cameron is by far and away the top earner from the Brisbane-based companies, while the top 10 were all paid more than one million dollars.
