GLAXO’S WITTY DOUBLES HIS PAY

GlaxoSmithKline boss Andrew Witty almost doubled his pay last year to net a total of £6.78m in pay, bonuses and share awards. Witty netted £3.7m in long-term awards, up from £1.4m the previous year in a bid to close a “competitiveness gap” in the chief executive’s pay packet, the pharmaceutical giant’s annual report showed yesterday.
