Who gets paid the best in an ad agency, account, planner or creative? Do all 3 roles get similar compensation? (comparing roles of the same seniority e.g. planning director vs account director vs creative director)

A top CCO can make more than the CEO

Creative, then strategy, then account. Account director and creative director aren’t exactly a 1:1 comparison based on the number of years experience for each.

Account director is the same level as senior creative and senior strat (UK). Business directors are the more senior suit than AD. They get paid equivalent to strat and creative directors, but not as much, because more people can do that job

It better be the creatives. But the reality is it depends on the agency.
