Best Buy's (BBY) CEO Hubert Joly got handsomely compensated in 2016 as he drove another comeback year for the retailer.
Joly earned $14 million in total compensation last year, down slightly from $14.9 million in the prior year. The executive hauled in about $1.2 million in base salary, with the remaining balance tied to various other compensation.
Thus far, Wall Street is banking on Best Buy and Joly having another pretty decent year.
Best Buy surprisingly saw its stock come out as the winner within the retail sector in the first quarter, despite disappointing Wall Street when it reported its fourth quarter results last month. In the last three months, Best Buy, which has a market cap of about $15.99 billion, saw its stock spike 22.9%, higher than any other stock within the retail sector, according to Factset data.
Joly is among some of the highest paid consumer executives around. Here are several of the top names.
