Crozier nets £1.7m at ITV

Adam Crozier has been paid £1.7m in his first eight months as ITV’s chief executive, according to MediaGuardian.

The former Football Association and Royal Mail man received a “golden hello” of £344,000 when he took the role last April; a “short-term” cash bonus of £252,000 was also earned on top of his £1.2m remuneration package.

A resurgent TV advertising market helped the broadcaster almost triple its pre-tax profits to £300m in 2010.
