Wiehoff’s base salary has been the same for the past three years, but his annual incentive compensation was down 6.3 percent compared with 2012. The annual bonus was decreased primarily because the company’s adjusted pretax income decreased 6.6 percent for the year.
The biggest dip in Wiehoff’s take-home compensation was due to a 59 percent decrease in the amount of restricted shares that vested in 2013 compared with 2012.
The company has had solid support for its executive compensation policies in the previous two years. The company had 95 percent support in shareholder say-on-pay votes at C.H. Robinson’s annual meetings in 2013 and 2012.
