I believe Dr. Vogt could a great choice, however, he may be tired of moving around???? Dr. D'Ambra has his "magic" few scientists that are getting all the perks too. He only shares the wealth with his handful of so called "walk on water" types. Be careful, unless you happen to be lucky enough to be one of the "chosen" few that get on the great $$$ wagon. You said you "have had the priveledge of meeting him"? You call that a priveledge? Not sure there are too many other stock holders that would agree. You may want to re-think that.....Lately, I sure don't feel priveledged to be holding "his" so called million dollar stock.........Just when I think it has hit rock bottom......surprise!!!
<<<Interesting � put another way Mr. Tom should get $50 k/yr based on market cap.>>>
If his salary/bonus were cut in 1/2 which imho would be a good start towards being ethical, AMRI's EPS and share price would certainly be alot higher!
<<<Why is it wrong to reward someone that built a billion dollar company � are you a communist?>>>
Pretty funny that you still believe AMRI is a billion dollar company. While you've been sleeping in a cave for the last several years it appears the market cap has fallen to aprox 300 mil. It's obvious from your screen-name and home town of Albany why you feel so comfortable with this blood sucking salary/bonus/options compensation. T.D'A raked in over $6.5 mil last year alone. It's one thing to be rewarded well when all the owners of the company (Shareholders) are sharing in the spoils yet another thing when his over-compensation continues while the company has lost 2/3 of its value over the last 3 years.
Your comment regarding communism is a laugh. What a sweetheart deal he awarded himself long before all of the various wallstreet scandals started surfacing! I believe T D'Ambra's compensation package is way out of line and it should be re-negotiated to reward him based on company performance.
