Disney CEO Bob Iger Salary REVEALED

On Sunday, November 20th, Disney announced that Bob Iger would be taking over the position of The Walt Disney Company CEO as Bob Chapek steps back.


Since the news broke, we’ve seen stock rise and learned why this decision was made when it was. Disney fans and celebrities have been sharing their opinions on social media as well. But now, Bob Iger’s salary and more details about the switch in CEOs has been released.

We recently learned that Bob Chapek is set to walk away with $23 million from this deal, but now we know more about what Iger’s salary looks like. According to a new report, Bob Iger entered an employment agreement to have an annual base salary of $1 million and a possible 100% bonus each year. The report says the annual bonus will depend on his performance in his position.


The employment agreement signed by Iger means he is entitled to The Walt Disney Company’s equity-based long-term incentive plans and programs. For each fiscal year that ends during this employment agreement, Iger will be given the long-term incentive award which has a target value of $25 million.

The report also says “The Company exercised its right to terminate without cause the employment of Robert A. Chapek as Chief Executive Officer.” Along with the termination, Chapek resigned from the Disney board. Back in June of 2022, Chapek extended his contract for 3 years — Chapek will receive separation benefits that were in that contract.


Bob Iger took over as CEO in 2005 from Michael Eisner, who welcomed him back with a message on Twitter. He served as the Chief Executive Officer until 2020 when we passed the torch onto Bob Chapek.
