She certainly is not getting paid for her ability to organize a quarterly earnings call. That last one was brutal. I got the impression she only cared about the election and not wanting to pay higher taxes with Obama in. Very unprofessional. On the edge of selling out this stock because of it.
It certainly is not her ability to manage a quarterly earnings call. Check out their website as it should be on the wall of shame. The entire explanation of quarterly results was non-existant and instead came down to a 'Best of Mike' show. When Q&A began about their poor earnings results, she spent the entire time telling analysts that results would remain poor if Obama was re-elected. It didn't exactly fill me with a lot of confidence about her ability going forward.
Ms.Denahan-Norris should get a modest salary increase when she assumed M.F.'s top position. She is not entitled to get the same salary as M.F. had but should show that she is as capable or even better than Mike was, before getting his salary. 35 MM seemed OK when things were going well, but it's now a battle that has to be won first before large salary increases are granted.
