Baker Magunda

Guinness Plc, Magunda was the tenth highest-paid CEO in 2019. There was a cut in Magunda's annual remuneration by -58.13% in 2019, it decreased from N461m in 2018 to N193m in 2018.

 

The last edition of the CEO's remuneration report suggested that the reason for Magunda's high compensation could be possibly traced to the compensation structure that links the CEO's pay to performance metrics such as profit. The plausible reason for the drastic fall in Magunda's pay could be attributed to the decline in Guinness Plc profit in 2019 (see Chart 11).
