DETROIT — Jim Hackett’s compensation in his second full year as CEO of Ford Motor Co. fell about 2 percent as the automaker failed to meet many financial targets.

His 2019 compensation included a $1.8 million base salary, unchanged from 2018; $13.2 million in stock awards, up nearly $500,000 from 2018; and $1.75 million in bonuses and incentives, down more than $800,000. Hackett’s total compensation also includes $91,523 for personal use of aircraft, a perk Ford’s CEO has long enjoyed.
Ford’s top executives hit 54 percent of their business performance targets in 2019,including only 4 percent of company revenue targets and 28 percent of cash flow targets. The total number was helped by executives hitting 118 percent of the company’s quality targets.
