Graphics: 2023 CCO/CECO salary trends

Compensation vector

Year 5 of our “Inside the Mind of the CCO” survey saw the average salary of responding chief compliance officers and chief ethics and compliance officers decline slightly, while other statistical trends repeated from previous iterations.

This year’s survey received 322 total responses, of which 117 (36 percent) were CCOs or CECOs. Respondents in those roles represented an average yearly salary—bonus included—of approximately $329,000, a figure just less than last year’s average of $335,000.

Exactly 50 percent of our CCO/CECO respondents this year said they had 11-20 years of compliance-related experience. Another 27 percent said more than 20 years. The average age of respondents in the role was approximately 53 years old.
