Top 25 Highest Paid Retail Executives In The United States In 2014

Unsurprisingly, Carol Meyrowitz, CEO of TJX Companies Inc., was the highest-paid executives from publicly traded retail companies in the United States, in a list by Fashion trade title Women’s Wear Daily.

Carol Meyrowitz made $28.7 million in total compensation in 2014. With a close $28.2 million, Brian Cornell, chairman and ceo of Target Corp., took the No. 2 spot on that list of the Top 25 Highest Paid Retail Executives In The United States. And L Brands Inc.’s Les Wexner was 3rd with earnings of $24.1 million. Rounding off the top 5 are Marvin Ellison ($19.6 million), J.C. Penney CEO, and Greg Foran, President and CEO, Walmart U.S ($19.5 million).

Still, there is a big caveat: There are still relatively few female executives (4) in the top jobs at apparel and consumer goods companies, 16 of the top 25 executives earned more than $10 million last year.
