State Farm boss will get $20 million payday


Tipsord’s incentive was based “on our financial results, growth, customer loyalty and employee engagement for the three years leading up to the year or compensation,” company spokeswoman Gina Morss-Fischer told The Pantagraph. “For the second year in a row, State Farm has seen impressive growth. The company continues to maintain the strong financial performance necessary to deliver on our promises to our customers, and our executive compensation package is designed to reward achievement of these growth targets. “

Last year, State Farm posted net income of $ 3.6 billion, a 34% decrease from net income of $ 5.6 billion in 2019. In 2018, State Farm achieved $ 8.8 billion, according to The Pantagraph Dollar.

However, the insurer’s net worth has grown steadily over the past three years, from $ 100.9 billion in 2018 to $ 116.2 billion last year. The company said the surge in net wealth during last year’s pandemic was driven by gains in the stock market.
