Bob Chapek nearly doubles his paycheck in 2021

The compensation Bob Chapek and Bob Iger made at the Walt Disney Company last year is now public information.

Disney CEO Bob Chapek saw his compensation package for the company’s fiscal 2021 hit about $32.5 million, more than double the $14.2 million he took home a year earlier.

Former CEO Bob Iger, who exited Disney at the end of last year as executive chairman, also more than doubled his take, with a total comp package worth $45.9 million, versus $21 million the year prior. In fiscal 2020, neither Chapek or Iger received bonuses(nor did other top Disney execs) amid the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the media conglomerate’s business.

Iger’s compensation for the most recent fiscal year included a $22.9 million cash bonus, plus $9.5 million in Disney stock and $9.3 million in stock options.
