Big Payday for Ford’s Mulally

Exec lands $29.5 mil in pay – after $58.3 mil stock package.

The turnaround at Ford may not be playing out quite as fast as shareholders would like but it’s certainly delivering for CEO Alan Mulally, who landed a $29.5 million compensation package for 2011, the maker has revealed.

That’s more than double what the number two Detroit maker gave Ford family heir and company CEO Bill Ford in the form of pay and bonuses.  And Mulally’s big payday follows the announcement earlier this month that the former Boeing executive had received $58.3 million as part of a long-term incentive package.

The Last Word!

Few executives in the auto industry have received more kudos than Mulally, who is credited with initiating many of the critical steps needed to not only revive Ford Motor Co. but also help it sidestep the bankruptcy-and-bailout route taken by its cross town rivals, General Motors and Chrysler, in 2009.

Nonetheless, there has been at least some pushback.


Mulally, Bill Ford Reap the Rewards of Their Success

Top two Ford execs getting nearly $100 mil in stock.

Ford CEO Alan Mulally (shown here) and Chairman Bill Ford collected nearly $100 million in stock bonuses.

Ford Motor Co. has awarded nearly $100 million in stock to its top two executives, CEO Alan Mulally and Chairman Bill Ford, as a reward for the company’s strong performance.

The maker turned in a $6.6 billion profit, last year, its best earnings report since 1999, and a significant turnaround for a company that lost $31.4 billion between 2005 and 2009.  Ford was, however, the only Detroit maker to avoid filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection two years ago.

The maker’s stock has risen roughly 14-fold since it hit bottom, in 2008, though Ford shares were priced at $14.50 at midday Tuesday, down from a 52-week peak of $18.97, reflecting concerns about the Libyan crisis and the automaker’s weaker-than-anticipated fourth quarter.

Mulally was awarded 3.8 million shares of stock, priced at $14.76 a share, for a total of $56 million.  William Clay Ford Jr. was presented 2.87 million shares, worth $42.4 million.

The two executives had to cover taxes, however, the company withholding $23 million in stock for Mulally, and $17 million in Ford’s shares.
