Spurs’ Daniel Levy is the highest-paid executive in Premier League, earning £3.26m last season; he is followed by Brightn’s director Paul Barber at £2.89m, then Marina Granovskaia at Chelsea third with a pay package of £2.24m

West Ham Vice-Chairman Karren Brady is ranked fourth with a package of £2.22m for last season, but that included a £1m bonus for introducing a new investor in the form of Czech Billionaire Daniel Kretinksy.  This is the third bonus Brady earned while at West Ham, having earned sums for introducing Tripp Smith and moving to the London Stadium in 2016.

The Vice Chairman’s basic is thought to be £1.24m, which is around what she is likely to have earned this season, ranking her ninth in the list above.

When David Sullivan and David Gold took over West Ham in 2010, they proudly revealed they were paying Karren Brady out of their own pockets for the first six months.

The West Ham 2011 financial accounts show the club paid the Hammers Vice Chairman £256,000 for the first time.

That package increased to £427,000 in 2012 and then hiked to a massive £1.634m in 2013, of which £1m was a bonus paid over 5 years for winning the bid to move to the London Stadium. In 2014 her basic rose by just £2,000 to £636,000, rising by a further £10,000 to £646,000 in 2015.

2016 saw another big rise to £907,000 before a slight decrease in 2017 to £868,000.

2018 was another bumper year with a base salary of £898,00 plus a consultant fee of £438,000 paid to a company controlled by Brady for introducing Tripp Smith as an investor making her annual total £1.336m. In 2019 her pay rose from £898,000 to £1.136m, a rise of 27% for that season.

In 2020 her pay was reduced to £1,027m during the pandemic before increasing again to £1.331m in 2021; last season, we saw her pay rise to £2.24m, including a £1m bonus.

Up to the end of last season, Brady’s total pay has reached nearly £12.5m (£12,432,000), with another £1.3m estimated this season to bring the total cost to £14m over twelve and a half years.
