BI looked at media big gun’s SEC filings (the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission) including their salary, stock award, option awards etc. This list is by no means extensive. The search was limited to public companies only, as well as companies that were pure-play advertising agencies (hence no Google or Facebook).

Please note, unfortunately there is just one woman who made the list.
