First Data Corp. paid Chief Executive Officer Frank Bisignano $51.6 million in 2015, almost twice what his former boss, JPMorgan Chase & Co. CEO Jamie Dimon, received last year.
Bisignano’s compensation included more than $44 million in stock and option awards, a $1.5 million salary and a $5 million cash bonus that the company identified as a retention award connected to its October 2015 initial public offering, New York-based First Data said Thursday in a proxy statement.
Dimon was paid $27 million in 2015, mostly in equity awards tied to JPMorgan’s performance. Bisignano, 56, left the bank in 2013 after serving as its co-chief operating officer to run KKR & Co.-backed First Data.
Daniel Charron, executive vice president global business solutions, was paid $24.8 million, and Guy Chiarello, First Data’s president, was paid $20.6 million, according to the summary compensation table in the filing.
