John Wren is raking in the cheddar…

John Wren, the Omnicom chief executive, was the mostly highly paid marketing services executive in 2007, taking home $10.4m for the year.
Although the amount he was paid dropped from $13.2m in 2006, Wren topped the table ahead of Michael Roth, the Interpublic chief executive.

Roth’s pay increased from $7.7m to $8.9m (which should drive George Parker fucking nuts — I’m sure he is blogging about it now), while Sir Martin Sorrell, chief executive of WPP, took home £3.57m ($6.96m) after an 8.5% annual increase.

Of course, this doesn’t count the extra $10 mil that Wren got for cashing in some stock options back in February — what a man does with his stock options of course is between him, his broker, his accountant and the potential tax shelter offshore account in the Caymans.
