Macquarie Group?s Chief Executive Officer Shemara Wikramanayake has been named the country?s highest paid CEO, with a total reported pay of almost $16M.

CSL boss Paul Perreault came in second, apparently earning $13.87M, and Goodman Group?s CEO Gregory Goodman estimated to be on $13.38M.

As encouraging as it is to see a female at the top, one isn't seen until over halfway with Susan Lloyd-Hurwitz from Mirvac Group, earning $4.83M. And rounding out the top 50 is John McBain, the leader at Centuria Capital, on $3.90M.

But it was the boss of online retailer Kogan, Ruslan Kogan, that pocketed the biggest pay rise of the year of $8.4M taking him to $9M overall.
