Australian Board Remuneration Survey Report

We partner McGuirk Management Consultants to produce the Australian Board & Governance Executive Remuneration Survey Report


The 2017 Australian Board Remuneration Survey is based on remuneration data covering 1,021 boards. This data has been collected from:

  • 390 online contributors
  • 261 boards who are ongoing contributors to the survey
  • 370 client boards of McGuirk Management Consultants.

Combined, 824 (81 per cent) of these boards remunerate either all directors, or a chair or a director. The report also covers remuneration data on board committees, MD/CEOs, finance executives/CFOs, company secretaries and governance executives.

All of the remuneration data presented in the full report tables has been segmented by revenue, assets, full time employees (FTE), type of organisation and type of industry.

We would like to thank everyone who contributed to the survey for their valuable input.

Governance Institute of Australia members can receive the combined results based on type of organisation.
