Haven't checked in a while but just looked at the federal 990 form for the latest 2016 (always a lag in years reported) for Holy Cross.
The form includes base compensation, bonus & incentives, other compensation, retirement, non-taxable benefits and the total.
Unlike many colleges and universities where the president or chancellor gets paid the most, Holy Cross, with a Jesuit in that position doesn't rank as a highly compensated employee or officer.
So, who's #1? Well, hasn't changed since the last time I looked, the Chief Investment Officer in both base comp and in almost every other sub-category and includes a $94K bonus and total comp of over $500K plus $54K deferred comp on "prior Form 990." So whether the HC endowment deserves that kind of comp or not, I'll let other experts here decide.
#2 spot belonged to the Senior VP, who made considerably less but still can lead a comfortable life after retirement.
#3 spot belonged to the head basketball coach but he made a lot less than many posters here would have expected. Base comp under $300K and just a little over that with other stuff.
#4 belongs to the VP of Advancement, who made a lot more than the basketball coach with the other comp included.
Milan's severance package put him in the overall #2 spot and apparently it cost the College about $521K in total to say goodbye to him.
It looks like based on Nate's salary, he can be "bought" to go elsewhere for those who want that to happen. I think he's earning his keep.
