Barra, Exec Pay Down in 2017 by Sebastien Bell April 30, 2018April 30, 2018 Share Comments Mary Barra’s pay is down about 3% last year to $22 million in 2017. The decline comes as a result of not exceeding performance targets by the same amount as in 2016. Along with Barra, GM President Dan Ammann, VP Mark Reuss, CFO Chuck Stevens, and North American President Alan Batey’s pay all went down, as well. Pay fell by an average of $650,000 across GM’s top brass, according to Automotive News. Last year, Barra earned about $5 million more than her crosstown rival, Ford CEO Jim Hackett.
