Jos. A. Bank Clothiers navigated a tough consumer market to gain in profit and stock price in the past fiscal year. The Hampstead retailer’s chief executive, R. Neal Black, also did well, taking home $2.6 million in pay, more than double his compensation in 2008.
On the other end of the executive pay spectrum, A.L. “Tom” Giannopoulos, head of Columbia-based MICROS Systems Inc., saw his total compensation drop $4.1 million. Giannopoulos’ $2.8 million pay package, while not a small sum, reflected the declining profit and stock market value at the information systems company during the past fiscal year.
