Frontier top execs' compensation jumps

Rochester Business Journal
March 28, 2011

Frontier Communications Corp. chairman and CEO Maggie Wilderotter received a 77 percent bump up in pay last year.

Wilderotter’s total 2010 compensation of $8.6 million was up from $4.8 million in 2009, a proxy statement filed Monday with the Securities and Exchange Commission shows.

Augmenting $974,167 in Wilderotter’s base pay were a $750,000 bonus, stock awards worth $5.6 million and $1.2 million in incentive plan compensation. Frontier picked up the tab for $39,843 in legal expenses incurred in the negotiation of a restatement of Wilderotter’s employment contract, the filing shows.

Next most highly paid after Wilderotter were:

  • Chief Financial Officer Donald Shassian, whose 2010 compensation of $2.7 million was up 52 percent from a $1.8 million pay package in 2009;
  • Chief Operating Officer Daniel McCarthy, whose 2010 compensation of $2.2 million was up 90 percent from $1. 2 million in 2009;
  • Cecelia McKenney, executive vice president for human resources and call center operations, whose compensation of $1.6 million was up 72 percent from $952,434 in 2009;  and
  • Peter Hayes, executive vice president commercial sales, whose $1.3 million 2010 pay package reflected a 23 percent bump up from $1.02 million in 2009.
