Our data indicates that Trinity Industries, Inc. has a market capitalization of US$2.5b, and total annual CEO compensation was reported as US$5.7m for the year to December 2023. That’s a fairly small increase of 4.3% over the previous year. We think total compensation is more important but our data shows that the CEO salary is lower, at US$930k.
