There are lots of ways these days to dig up info on corporate bigwigs. Financial sites list the recent stock transactions, and FTC rules require other kinds of declarations, like where political donations are made.

This would be a good place to start a list both of the guys (and girls) in the boardroom as well as providing websites where info can be found.

They can run but they can't hide.

Here's one of the places to see what your boss's boss is making on stock trades from your company. Interesting. and even shocking.

Lockheed-Martin is the default I have for my case, but type in the stock symbol of yours.

Raytheon - US:RTN
Microsoft - MSFT
Agilent - US:ANEN
Intel - INTC
Anaren - US:ANEN
Qualcomm - US:QCOM

Then check out some oil company execs and ask why you are paying $2.50 (or more) for a gallon of gas.

Exxon - US:XOM
Sunoco - US:XOM ... Symbol=lmt

It is interesting to see the stock transactions by the executives, but I would not try to read too much into it. I think for most companies you find top execs selling. That has more to do with current compensation methods. Most execs get most of their income from stock transactions, options and shares, rather than a paycheck. Typically they are given options a certain percentage below current market price that they can execute immediately. If they don't sell, it would be like not cashing a paycheck.
