Kim Bowers, chief executive of CST Brands Inc. had the lowest compensation package of the women on the list, at $4.9 million. “But the numbers do show some women CEOs are competitively paid, and the findings echo other studies that show signs of progress toward equal compensation between the genders atop the corporate ladder,” Sara Murray, reporter for The Wall Street Journal said.
