Jack Klues Kicks Compensation Ass
We know Jack Klues. We like Jack Klues. Jack Klues is a very nice guy. But we're certain Jack Klues has completely forgotten our brief, one year stint on the Starcom team...which is completely irrelevant to the news a recent salary report placed him third highest paid exec (and top paid media exec the world over) at Publicis and deservedly so. Can anyone argue the point Starcom is a media force to be reckoned with in this industry? No. Didn't think so. Say what you will about overpaid ad execs and there are plenty of their pompous asses out there but Jack is not one of them. Jack deserves every penny he earns.
In total, the report states Jack brings in $2,517,076. About a million of that is salary and about $1.5 million consists of various bonuses. While not the "sweetest package" as MediaPost states, $2.5 million anyway it comes is pretty admirable.
Klues follows Publicis Chairman and CEO Maurice Levy who brings in $4,515,749 and Saatchi CEO Kevin Roberts who brings in $3,975,951.
