BSkyB and Deloitte bosses net millions

THE senior partner of accountancy firm Deloitte, John Connolly, and the chief executive of BSkyB, John Darroch, have been awarded pay packages worth millions.<br /><br />Connolly, whose firm Deloitte is the auditor of the part-nationalised Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS), grabbed an annual pay packet of &pound;5.3m, benefiting from Deloitte&rsquo;s profit-sharing scheme as the company earned &pound;58.8m in fees from RBS in 2008.<br /><br />Meanwhile, Darroch was handed a 19 per cent pay rise last year, pocketing more than &pound;2.3m, BSkyB revealed in a US regulatory filing.<br /><br />His pay increase was driven by a 22 per cent hike in his bonus, which jumped to &pound;1,485,000 from &pound;1,216,250 in the previous year. But he still earns less than predecessor James Murdoch.
