Newly minted Time Warner Cable chief financial officer Irene Esteves has signed an employment deal that will pay her about $9.8 million in salary, bonuses and one-time awards, according to documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission Thursday.
Time Warner Cable announced it had hired Esteves May 26. A long-time finance executive, Esteves comes from insurance giant XL Group.
According to the SEC filing, Esteves will receive an annual salary of $800,000, an annual discretionary cash bonus of up to $1.2 million and an annual long-term incentive compensation of $3 million, based on certain performance targets.
