Bonus Watch ’11: Eleventh Year Jefferies CEOs

Richard Handler has declared himself not worthy.

Jefferies Group CEO Richard Handler said he is among the managers who declined bonuses for after the firm’s stock dropped more than 50 percent this year. “We’ve given back our entire bonus,” Handler, 50, said yesterday, referring to himself and Brian Friedman, chairman of the executive committee. Handler, who receives a $1 million salary, didn’t say how much money they turned down.

    Evidently, getting Dick for a bonus was too much to Handle.

    Probably should have taken it to buy stock in any other company.

    Smoke and mirrors. If the bonus was negative and he gave it back, he's now getting paid…idiots.

    I think he can he write off the bonus he gave back since JEF is essentially a non-prof.

    In Buffalo, NY, presently nothing beats La Nova, but only due to the fact Pizza City on Niagara Street was taken more than by persons who apparently dislike pizza and the people today who consume it.
