Where: Citizens Energy Group, Indiana
Carey Lykins’s 2014 multimillion-dollar pay package at the Indiana utility company was too good to last. After heavy criticism, his pay will get cut by almost one third under a new executive compensation system. He’s also slated to retire at the end of June. The comp of several other Citizens’ executives is up there, too. William Tracy, senior vice president and chief operations officer, made $981,037 in 2014.
