EasyJet’s New Chief Exec Takes Voluntary Pay Cut

Johan Lundgren, the new Chief Executive of easyJet, has elected to go from an annual £740,000 salary down to £706,000, the final salary of former Chief Executive Carolyn McCall before she left for a job at ITV.

“At easyJet we are absolutely committed to giving equal pay and equal opportunity for women and men. I want that to apply to everybody at easyJet and to show my personal commitment I have asked the board to reduce my pay to match that of Carolyn’s when she was at easyJet,” said Lundgren.
