Ferries salaries released

BC Ferries CEO David Hahn collected $984,000 in pay and bonuses in 2009

BC Ferries has released salary information on its senior staff.

BC Ferries CEO David Hahn collected $984,000 in pay and bonuses in 2009

That was a slight decrease from last year because of a smaller bonus.

Hahn’s base salary is $510,000.

BC Ferries salary information was released this month in response to a Freedom of Information request.

Three other vice-presidents at the corporation have base salaries of at least $300,000 and, once bonuses and incentive plans are included, collected between $480,000 to $537,000 each in 2009.

The figures show ferry corporation executive pay levels climbed sharply after 2003, when the former Crown corporation was turned into a semi-private entity.

The province has moved to cap the salaries of new executives hired in future, but there are no provisions to reduce existing pay levels.
