Many readers had requested that I look at credit union CEO compensation relative to various performance metrics.

This commentary looks at the compensation relative to net income and non-interest expense.

The median CEO compensation to net income ratio was 5.35 percent. Kam Wong of Municipal Credit Union (NY) had the highest ratio of CEO compensation to net income of 104.87 percent. The next highest ratio was 72.03 percent from Bert Hash, Jr. of Municipal Employees Credit Union of Baltimore (MD). The following table looks at the 10 credit union CEOs with the highest ratio of compensation to net income.

The median CEO compensation to non-interest expense ratio was 1.63 percent. However, Glen Yeager of Utilities Employees Credit Union (PA) had the highest ratio of compensation to non-interest expense at 40.85 percent. The next highest was Olan Jones, Jr. of Eastman Credit Union (TN) at 13.62 percent. The following table looks at the 10 CEOs with the highest ratio of compensation to non-interest expense.
