Crocmedia wages revealed: Hutchison pockets $944,752

New documents filed by Crocmedia to the Australian Stock Exchange reveal the six-figure salaries of its senior executives.

While those documents have since been removed, they’ve now been published by News Corp and they’re an eye-opener.

The salaries of Crocmedia’s top 20 executives include the financial arrangements of managing director Craig Hutchison, who recently became chief executive and managing director of Pacific Star Network; the owner of Melbourne Sports broadcaster 1116 SEN.

Hutchison’s salary comes in at $944,752 and includes a potential $61,000 bonus, while former AFL executive Richard Simkiss pockets $390,000 as Crocmedia’s new group business director.

Phew. But wait, there’s more.

Former Channel 9 programming boss Tim Cleary is being paid $410,000 and Crocmedia’s Chris Giannopoulos is on a base of $430,000, with a bonus potential of $50,000.

It goes to show that there is money to be made in sport, even if you’re not putting your body on the line in the field of sports.

Sorry, there’s not money to be made in this. Just wait. Let’s have a look at this in 2 years time. Also, a tip for employees of SEN – make sure you check your text messages as you don’t want to miss the inevitable!
