PrezBo Rollin’ in the Benjamins
Written by Bwog Staff
As we reported last month, the economy may be in the tank, but PrezBo’s doing all right for himself: for the 2007-08 year, he’s earning $1.4 million in total compensation. Now, to remind us all just how high a sum that is, the Chronicle of Higher Education reports that Bollinger was the third-highest paid university president in the country (by total compensation). He trails only Henry Bienen of Northwestern (a cool $1.74 million) and, for reasons explained in this companion article, David Sargent of little-known Suffolk University (a whopping $2.8 million).
Oh and, that $1.4 million does not include the income PrezBo receives from sitting on various executive boards, including the Washington Post and the New York Fed. Hey, PrezBo, can you spare a dime?
