President and Chief Executive Wendell Weeks of Corning Inc. received total compensation valued at $8.23 million last year, according to a regulatory filing Tuesday.

Weeks received a base salary of $952,000, $1.97 million in performance incentives, stock and option awards valued at $5.1 million and $178,492 in other compensation, including $81,000 for financial counseling and $42,000 for use of an aircraft.

The Associated Press calculation of total pay includes salary, bonus, incentives, perks, above-market returns on deferred compensation and the estimated value of stock options and awards granted during the year.
