The World: New York - Omnicom chief Wren remains top earner

John Wren, the Omnicom chief, remains the top earner among the world's marcom company bosses, with a package totalling $10.4 million last year.

However, his remuneration was down by about $3 million on 2006. This has allowed his Interpublic counterpart, Michael Roth, to close the gap, his pay having jumped to a total of $8.9 million.

The figures, based on recently filed proxy statements, only partly account for how top managers are rewarded. Wren also gained more than $10 million by cashing in stock options that are not included on the proxy statement.
