Former BP boss Dudley's 2019 pay dropped by 13%

LONDON, March 18 (Reuters) - BP's former chief executive Bob Dudley's 2019 remuneration drop 13% from the previous year to $13.23 million, the company said in its annual report on Thursday.

BP's profit declined in 2019 but it raised its dividend after a rise in cash generation and production.

Dudley, 64, retired last month after a decade at the helm of the oil and gas company to be succeeded by Bernard Looney.
