By Family Business Magazine | Apr 23, 2024 | Read more

Principal Bonnie Schindler wrote an article in Family Business Magazine discussing a recent survey (conducted by CAP and MLR Media) on executive compensation for family businesses. This is the third iteration of the survey, which includes 300+ family businesses, representing a wide range of industries and revenue sizes.

More than one-quarter of respondents represent manufacturing companies, but many other industries are represented. The survey asked respondents to provide compensation data for 10 common executive positions and to provide an overview of pay practices, such as compensation philosophy, salary increase budgets, bonus plan design and spending and long-term incentive design.
