Aon PLC CEO Greg Case took home $12 million in total compensation last year.

Case, who engineered Aon’s corporate headquarters move to London from Chicago a few weeks ago, received a $1.5 million salary, $1.3 million in additional cash incentive pay and $9.2 million in stock awards, according to Aon’s proxy statement filed April 18.

In the proxy, the board said Case was being rewarded for the financial performance of the commercial insurance brokerage and corporate consultant. Aon’s stock price last year rose 3 percent while the Standard & Poor’s 500 index was flat.

Case received a total of $20.8 million in 2010, mainly due to $17 million in stock awards under Aon’s incentive pay programs.
