Disney boss gets 24% pay raise

Iger's bump is in line with studio's stock performance

Walt Disney CEO Robert Iger received a 24% boost in his compensation in the fiscal year 2010, pretty much in line with the conglom’s stock performance in the same period.

According to a regulatory filing made Friday, Iger’s package for the year ending Oct. 2 was $29.6 million vs. $23.9 million the year before. During that same time, Disney’ stock rose 23% and profits at the Mouse House were up 20% to nearly $4 billion.

The filing praised Iger’s performance during the year, especially in difficult economic times. It specifically cited ratings gains at ESPN and Disney Channel and the B.O. performance of “Alice in Wonderland” and “Toy Story 3.” During that period, Disney acquired Marvel and game company Playdom and sold its Miramax film unit.

Iger also won kudos for hiring former Yahoo media boss Jimmy Pitaro to run digital for Disney.
