National Australia Bank has revealed that former CEO Andrew Thorburn will receive a ‘golden handshake’ of $1m. However, he will forgo about $22m in performance rights following his resignation. Thorburn was paid about $4m in 2018, but acting CEO Phil Chronican will be paid just $150,000 a month while he is in the role. Meanwhile, NAB chairman Ken Henry will have no role in selecting a permanent successor to Thorburn, while Angus Gluskie of White Funds Management has urged NAB to choose a new CEO within six months.
