Murphy USA President and CEO Andrew Clyde saw his total compensation surge above $10.3 million in 2022, up from $8.6 million the year before, as the company reported soaring profit.
The El Dorado national gasoline and convenience store chain had net income of $672.9 million in 2022, with profits up nearly 70% from the year before.
The company reported Clyde’s compensation in a proxy statement filed Thursday.

- CFO and Treasurer Mindy K. West, who earned nearly $3.2 million, up from $2.8 million in 2021
