Activision and EA Both Appear On "Most Overpaid CEOs" List

The non-profit advocacy group As You Sow has released its 2019 "Most Overpaid CEOs" report and it includes two notable companies from the games industry. Both Activision's Bobby Kotick and Electronic Arts' Andrew Wilson appeared on the top 100 list, which is intended to promote corporate responsibility.

The non-profit bases its estimates on a CEO's yearly earnings, based on a calculation that takes into account shareholder returns. Kotick appeared at number 45, with an annual pay of more than $28 million--which As You Sow estimates is overpaid by almost $13 million. Andrew Wilson barely appeared on the list at number 98, with salary of more than $35 million, or an excess of $19 million.
