Public Company CFOs Earn More than Their Private Company Counterparts

CFO Magazine reports that:

According to the Financial Executives Research Foundation’s 2010 financial executive compensation survey, public-company finance chiefs make an average base salary of $285,000, compared with $204,800 for their private-company counterparts.
