Time Warner CEO Wins Contract Extension – $17 Million Compensation Package

Glenn Britt

Time Warner Cable has notified the Securities and Exchange Commission that the cable company has extended the contract of current CEO Glenn Britt through at least the end of 2013, an extension of one year.

As part of the contract deal, the cable company added provisions for “long-term incentive compensation,” a combination of salary, bonuses, and other financial incentives designed to keep a CEO from looking for greener pastures elsewhere.  Britt’s package is anticipated to be worth at least $17 million over the period 2012-2013, which includes a base salary of at least $1.25 million, and much of the rest coming from bonuses.

Britt is likely being rewarded for the company’s strong financial results and stock price, which has been high recently.  But the cable company continues to lose cable-TV video customers, and is finding increasing resistance to rate increases from cash-strapped consumers being priced out of the company’s packages.

    And these clowns wonder why I dropped their service. It’s really hard to justify all these ridiculous rates they’re charging these days. They want a box rental fee plus a DVR service fee which is nothing but a quick cash grab. Believe me TW will not give you a box with a HD in it capable of recording and disable it until you pay for DVR service. Plain and simple unless you agree to their price gouging you will only get a regular box. Not to mention their lovely $99 triple play bundle which ends up being more like a $140 triple play bundle after all of their hidden fees are added in.

    Slime Warner CEO makes more in one year than my whole neighborhood does in a lifetime of slavery to the machine.
    And the day you try to do your metered billing again willl be the day I dump your service even if it means to go to a slower service.
