Money comes and goes. Relationships come and go. But what you learn once stays with you forever

I am currently responsible for all of the company’s financial functions including accounting, auditing, treasury, corporate finance and investor relations. Because I oversee quite a diverse and complex team, there is an HR element to my job which has, over the years, improved my social and communication skills. I hold a bachelor’s degree in mathematics and an MBA in finance/quantitative analysis, as well as an MS in statistics and operations research. I boast over a decade of experience in the financial industry. Apart from my professional life, I thoroughly enjoy leisure time with my family and sightseeing.

Do you think CEOs are overpaid?

I don't know. I'd like to believe that some CEOs are not overpaying themselves especially by giving themselves bonuses when everybody in the company does not get any bonuses. However, the big salary is well deserve because it is not easy to run a big company and all those people depend on you. It takes guts.

CEOs get paid a lot! They don't even do much so it's really annoying they get paid so much!

I think they deserve to have the highest pay since they are the ones who are leading the company. Their responsibility is bigger than everybody else. So it is just right to give them that.

CEOs get paid to handle all the issues of the company that's why they get a huge paycheck. If the company sales drop, they're the one who gets blamed for everything. Stressful job!

Sure but you have to admit there are some unscrupulous ones who pay themselves bonuses while their employees don't even get any.

I agree. We cannot actually say that all CEOs are not using their power for their own gains.

They should be paid more for they are the face of the company. All the bad and the good about the company, they represent it. The stress and responsibility is not a joke.

CEOs are stressed by everything that happens to the company! They steer the company in the right direction and I think they deserve a big paycheck for that.

It's not fair that they get paid a lot. Employees are the ones who work hard for the company!
