David Rawlinson II, the president and CEO of Qurate Retail Group, received a compensation package of $4.96 million from the retail group in 2022 for his contributions to the financial success of the American media conglomerate.

While Rawlinson’s 2022 compensation package represents a substantial drop of 69.43 percent compared to the previous year’s total reward of $16.22 million, it comes as Qurate faces intensified competition from retailers increasingly embracing live-streaming shopping and social media marketing.

His compensation package in 2022 includes a base salary of $1.25 million, supplemented by a performance-based short-term incentive of $781,250, attributed to the company’s financial year performance and Rawlinson II’s exemplary leadership of Qurate Retail Group.

In recognition of his unwavering dedication, Rawlinson also received a long-term incentive award amounting to $2.93 million from the leading retail Group.
