Salaries among top-level executives at Thermo Fisher Scientific rose across the board after the company posted a 31 percent increase to its bottom line.
The Waltham-based laboratory instruments maker said executives received an average base wage increase of about 4 percent in 2008, not including performance bonuses and stock awards.
CEO Marijn Dekkers pulled in the highest compensation, at a $1.1 million base salary and $1.8 million in incentives. He was also granted stock valued at around $15.5 million. Dekkers, 51, took the helm at Thermo Fisher in 2002.
Last month the company reported $10.5 billion in sales for 2008. The uptick helped push net income to $994 million, a 31 percent increase from the $761 million the company reported in 2007.
