Wesfarmers CEO takes pay cut

The CEO of Wesfarmers - Richard Goydon - has taken a notable pay cut, with the value of his short-term incentive payments having reduced by half compared to last year.

The Wesfarmers annual report for 2015-16 showed that Goyder's base salary was $3,348m AUS - little changed from the previous year - but his incentive payments had dropped to $1.05m AUS, compared with $2.1m AUS.

Overall, his renumeration package has dropped to $5.5m, compared with $9.9m in 2014-15.

The reductions come as a result of an 83.3% decline in profits at Wesfarmers, which has diversified interests in the mining, industrial and chemical sectors, but predominantly operates within the retailing sector.  The conglomerate owns retail brands Bunnings, Coles, K-Mart, Target and Officeworks in Australia and New Zealand.
