Executive Pay Issues In Picture At Disney
By LEON LAZAROFF
When Walt Disney Co. shareholders gather Friday in Anaheim, Calif., for the company's annual meeting, Chief Executive Robert Iger is bound to trumpet the company's revived stock price, big improvements at its networks and theme parks and the recent bold move to buy Pixar.
One subject Iger hopes shareholders won't dwell on is how much he and his predecessor, Michael Eisner, are getting paid. Another is whether Disney Chairman George Mitchell was less than open about the search process that promoted Iger to take over from Eisner in October.
