Witty earned 6.78 million pounds ($10.7 million), an 84 percent increase from a year earlier, mostly as the London-based company awarded a higher bonus and more shares, according to Glaxo’s annual report. Witty’s pay consisted of 1 million pounds in base salary, a 2 million-pound bonus and 3.74 million pounds in shares, the drugmaker said in the report.
Witty helped generate “the company’s best annual total shareholder return since the formation of GSK in 2000,” Glaxo said.
