Salary

There are many factors used to determine the Regional VP salary and package expectations – size of business, industry, growth stage, product pipeline and company turnover – just to name a few.

We’d expect a salary between £100,000 – £300,000 with additional benefits such as private medical insurance, performance related bonuses and pension contributions as standard for this level of role. The salary is largely determined by the organisation type, i.e., a large global listed business will be closer to the top range, with an early-stage scale-up towards the lower end of the scale, potentially with an equity package to enhance the overall package.

Equally, if an employer requires a Regional Vice President with specific niche experience and knowledge, the candidate will often be able to negotiate a salary at the higher end of this scale.
