Who are the highest-paid executives in SWMO?

Posted online

U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filings show the highest-paid executives of publicly traded companies in southwest Missouri.

Springfield Business Journal examined the top-ranking named executives from Carthage-based manufacturer Leggett & Platt Inc. (NYSE: LEG), Monett-based financial industry software firm Jack Henry & Associates Inc. (Nasdaq: JKHY), Springfield-based auto parts retailer O’Reilly Automotive Inc. (Nasdaq: ORLY), and Springfield-based banking companies Great Southern Bancorp Inc. (Nasdaq: GSBC) and Guaranty Federal Bancshares Inc. (Nasdaq: GFED).

The result is SBJ’s 2018 list of southwest Missouri’s highest-paid executives, ranked by total 2017 compensation. It will be featured in full in SBJ’s Sept. 24 edition.

Below are the top five:

1. Karl Glassman, president/CEO, Leggett & Platt (first on SBJ’s 2017 list)
Glassman’s 2017 compensation was down 12.9 percent, but that didn’t affect his No. 1 ranking atop SBJ’s list. The executive’s base salary was $1.1 million last year, and he earned $4.2 million in bonuses, stock awards and options, among other compensation.

2. David Foss, president/CEO, Jack Henry & Associates (sixth on SBJ’s 2017 list)
The most recent available compensation data for Jack Henry cover the company’s fiscal year ended June 30, 2017. Foss succeeded Jack Prim as CEO in July 2016, causing his compensation to rise 101.1 percent to $4 million.

3. Greg Henslee, executive vice chairman, O’Reilly Automotive (second on SBJ’s 2017 list)
Henslee, who in May relinquished the CEO role and became executive vice chairman of the board, saw his 2017 compensation drop by 37 percent to $2.9 million. His base salary during the year was $1.3 million.

4. Matthew Flanigan, executive vice president/chief financial officer, Leggett & Platt (fourth on SBJ’s 2017 list)
Flanigan’s compensation dipped by 0.6 percent to $2.7 million in 2017. Bonuses, stock awards and options, at $1.4 million, contributed the most to his total compensation. His base salary was $542,731.

5. Mitch Dolloff, executive vice president, Leggett & Platt (10th on SBJ’s 2017 list)
During 2017, Dolloff brought home total compensation of $2 million, a 39 percent increase over the prior year. His base salary was $479,808, and he earned $891,059 via bonuses, stock awards and options.
