Kroger CEO pay falls for third consecutive year
Cincinnati -- Kroger Co. CEO and chairman David Dillon saw his pay fell again as the chain's sales and profit growth fell below tough targets amid continuing economic instability.
An Associated Press analysis shows Dillon received compensation for 2011 valued at $5.4 million, down 19% from 2009. It is the third straight year in which Dillon's largely performance-based pay fell.
The AP's calculation counts salary, bonuses, perks and stock and options awarded to the executive during the year.
