Milton Little Jr., United Way of Metro Atlanta CEO: $435,962
The United Way would not disclose CEO Milton Little‘s salary when the AJC wrote about compensation for his predecessor, Mark O’Connell, in 2007. Now the organization has filed a tax form reporting Little’s 2008 compensation as nearly $436,000, including benefits and $77,000 in expenses.
United Way also gave chief operating officer Ayesha Khanna a 10.7 percent raise to $210,917 in 2008, according to the tax forms, posted recently at www.guidestar.org. Chief financial officer Mark Sutton got a 14 percent pay hike to $137,117.
O’Connell made $494,045 in his last year on the job. That doesn’t count the $1.6 million he collected in a one-time retirement bonus to supplement his $106,000-a-year pension.
