There is a new big paycheck in town. Rakesh Kapoor, chief executive officer of RB (formerly Reckitt Benckiser) has shot to the top of beauty ceo salary list with a package of £23,190,895, translating to $35,458,878. He ousts Johnson and Johnson ceo Alex Gorsky, who now places third with an income of $23,795,866. Meanwhile, Leslie Wexner, chairman and ceo of L Brands, moved from fifth place to second on an income of $27,168,100, up 12.8%. Due to regional financial regulations that do not require these salaries to be reported, Hypermarcas, Kosé, Lion, Mandom, Milbon, Natura, Pola Orbis, Fancl and Alès Groupe are missing from the list. Also absent is Coty due to a change in management during the fiscal year and AmorePacific Group because executive compensation was only partially disclosed.
