There has been a lot of noise recently about how much the Australia post CEO (Ahmed Fahour) earns. One of the statements I came across was in this image that states he is the highest paid postal executive on the planet.

Ahmed Fahour - Australia Post CEO - The highest paid postal executive on the planet making a whopping 5.6 million a year. Share if you think this is a disgrace.

(This photo was found on Facebook.)

Is this true? If not which ones earn more?

    I'm more interested in the other implied question here - that there is a higher paid Postal Executive off the planet... Commented May 26, 2017 at 0:05

No, he ist not the best paid Post CEO.

Frank Appel the CEO of Deutsche Post AG (German Post) has a salary of 5.2 million Euro, which when considering the current exchange rate fluctuations within the last year is somewhere between AUD 7.2 and 8.3 million.
