Supervalu shells out $12.7M to CEOs in 2012


During a year when hundreds of company employees were laid off, the three top executives who led Supervalu during the 2012 fiscal year were paid a combined $12.68 million, the Pioneer Press reports.

Craig Herkert, who left the embattled Eden Prairie-based grocer last July, was paid $4.7 million last year.

Wayne Sales, who replaced Herkert as chief executive officer until February of this year, was paid $5.3 million in executive compensation.

Current CEO Sam Duncan was paid $2.7 million, which included a $500,000 bonus and $2.1 million in option awards.

Supervalu sold off five of its supermarket chains in March to an investor group led by Cerberus Capital Management for $3.3 billion.

Shortly after the sale, the company announced it was eliminating roughly 1,100 jobs, including 600 in Minnesota.
