The Star Tribune examined annual proxy statements and 10-K filings for the largest publicly held companies in Minnesota. All data are for the most recently completed fiscal year, which in most cases was the 2016 calendar year. Some executives were not included if their pay information was not available at press time. Executives are ranked based on total compensation. The Star Tribune counts salary, bonus, other compensation, the value of restricted stock that vested during the year and the value of options that were exercised during the year. Information was taken from proxy statements filed before June 1, 2017.
