Figures produced by Financial Analysis Made Easy reveal that a record 1,445 UK directors were paid £1m or more last year, up a whopping 40 per cent from two years ago. On the list of highest earners in the country is Simon Nixon, founder of moneysupermarket.com. The 39-year-old floated his Cheshire-based firm in July last year and triumphed at our Growing Business Awards by picking up the gong for Entrepreneurs’ Entrepreneur. To round things off, Nixon ended his year in style by taking home £15.4m. Another entrepreneur raking it in is vacuum-cleaner designer Sir James Dyson, who pocketed a casual £28.9m. Not half bad.
