In just a few months, the names of the top highest-paid REIT CEOs of 2013 will be released by SNL Financial. Of the top 20 highest-paid REIT CEOs in 2011, 14 remained in the top 20 in 2012, and John Kilroy Jr. of Kilroy Realty Corp., an office REIT, moved up to the No. 1 spot in 2012 from the No. 17 spot in 2011. Will Kilroy retain first place? Or will another CEO rocket to the top? And will another woman CEO join Debra Cafaro of Ventas Inc. in the upper echelon?
