Kroger CEO Rodney McMullen’s 2020 compensation package jumped to $20.6 million, the nation’s largest grocer disclosed in a government filing.

McMullen got a $6.4 million raise – more than 45% – as he steered the supermarket chain with stores in 35 states through the COVID-19 pandemic last year. His total compensation in the previous year was $14.2 million, according to the Associated Press’ methodology for executive compensation that excludes pension value changes.
