The Canberra Times reports that ACTEW has
been dragged kicking and screaming happily complied with new legislation to divulge the pay of ACTEW CEO Mark Sullivan (also star of twitter and occasional RiotACT commenter.)
Mr Sullivan receives a package worth $637,970 a year, which includes a salary of $553,907 plus superannuation of $85,063.
By comparison, the heads of the Prime Minister’s Department, Treasury and Defence Terry Moran, Ken Henry and Ian Watt respectively were each paid about $503,000 last year, including super.
But Mr Sullivan’s salary falls short of the Defence Materiel Organisation’s chief Stephen Gumley, whose remuneration package last year was between $700,000 and $715,000.
Actew, an ACT Government-owned company, directly employs about 35 staff and supplies water to about 145,000 customers.
(While they might have 145,000 customers I’m pretty sure they supply water to everyone in the ACT)
It’s particularly nice that the amount is justified by the board’s unanimous approval.
