May 9 Prudential Financial Inc
shareholders on Tuesday approved the company's compensation for
executives and sided with directors in rejecting a proposal that
would require an independent board chairman.
Shareholders voted at the annual shareholders meeting in
Newark, New Jersey, to award Chairman and Chief Executive
Officer John Strangfeld a total of $17.4 million in direct
compensation, which includes his base salary as well as annual
and long-term bonuses. Strangfeld's compensation was largely
unchanged from 2015.
