The company's 2010: An independent director of Chicago-based mall owner General Growth since November 2005, Metz was named to the top job in October 2008. The company filed for bankruptcy in April 2009 and emerged in November 2010. Metz left the company a month later. Metz was compensated according to a court-approved formula tied to how much was recovered for unsecured creditors and certain stockholders. Metz recently joined private equity firm TPG as a senior adviser.
General Growth's stock ended the year up 990.1 percent to $15.41. Revenue was down 2.01 percent to $2.74 billion. The company's net earnings dipped 12.1 percent to $1.44 billlion.
