Not Baird for a 162 day job

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - News -

FOR­MER Pre­mier Mike Baird has cashed in by mak­ing the switch to bank­ing, earn­ing about five times the amount he was paid per year in pol­i­tics at Na­tional Aus­tralia Bank.

NAB’s an­nual re­port for the 12 months to Septem­ber 30 re­vealed yes­ter­day that Mr Baird (pic­tured) has been paid $886,845 since he started as chief cus­tomer of­fi­cer on April 21 — a tidy sum for just 162 days’ work.

This in­cluded a $535,766 salary, $227,754 in short term in­cen­tives plus ad­di­tional ben­e­fits. An­nu­alised, it equates to a pay packet of about $2.1 mil­lion — five times the $387,000 he was paid as pre­mier.
