How Does John Fitzgerald's Compensation Compare With Similar Sized Companies?

According to our data, Magyar Bancorp, Inc. has a market capitalization of US$67m, and pays its CEO total annual compensation worth US$617k. (This figure is for the year to September 2018). While this analysis focuses on total compensation, it's worth noting the salary is lower, valued at US$411k. We looked at a group of companies with market capitalizations under US$200m, and the median CEO total compensation was US$493k.
