CEOs in UAE earn Dh115,500 p/m, less than Saudi and Qatari peers
CEOs in the UAE on average earn Dh1.386 million ($377,664) per annum or Dh115,500 ($31,470) a month - less than their Saudi and Qatari peers with Arabic CEOs commanding 10 per cent premium.
CEO's from Saudi Arabia top the money list with an average annual salary of Dh1.55 million ($422,280) a year or Dh129,150 ($35,190) a month.
The Gulf Business survey ranked the GCC CEO's as follows; Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE, Kuwait, Oman and Bahrain and is based on CEOs who are responsible for sales of more than $50 million.
CEOs in Qatar earn Dh1.467 million per annum ($399,648) or Dh122,225 ($33,304) a month. Arabic CEOs employed over the past year are commanding a 10 per cent premium in their salaries compared with Western Expatriates due to the demand for Arabic speaking executives, particularly in infrastructure-based industries.
Kuwait's situation is in contrast to the top three countries for CEO earnings, where the churn (the productivity) rate in the market is surprisingly low. CEO's salaries are still healthy at Dh1.333 million per annum ($363,120), although without an active executive recruitment market, pay rises will be minimal in the current climate.
Oman's GDP growth is forecast to be higher than that of many developed and emerging economies, which is good news for Oman's executive wages. With annual salaries still over the million-dirham mark at Dh1.222 million ($344,952), the Gulf state is considered to be the one to watch with reference to potential growth in the c-level executive recruitment market.
