OAK BROOK, Ill., April 14 (UPI) -- Pay for McDonald's retiring Chief Executive Officer Jim Skinner slipped in 2011 compared to 2010, the company said in a regulatory filing.

Skinner, who announced his retirement in March, was paid $8.8 million in salary and stock awards -- including stock options -- for 2011, a 10 percent drop from his 2010 pay of $9.7 million, The Chicago Tribune reported Saturday.

As he leaves the company, Skinner will be paid an additional $10 million in cash at the end of the year, McDonald's said.

Skinner is leaving June 30 and will be replaced by McDonald's Chief Operating Officer Don Thompson.
