LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -

The chief executive officer at Wal-Mart was the highest-paid public company executive in Arkansas last year.
 
That's according to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette , which added salary, bonus incentives, perks, above-market returns on deferred compensation, and including the estimated value of stock options and awards granted during the year to come up with its list of highest-paid CEOs in the state.
 
Douglas McMillion, who took over the position at Wal-Mart in February, received a compensation package valued at $25.3 million last year. That's about double what he received in 2012 when he was an executive vice president at the retailer.

Two Tyson Foods trailed McMillon by almost $5 million. Chief operating officer James Lochner earned $20.8 million in 2013, while chairman John Tyson received $20.5 million.
