Guy F. Riekeman, Life U. president: $753,106
Guy Riekeman made a healthy $318,038 in 2005-06 as president of Life University. But he’s done even better for himself since then at the chiropractic college in Marietta, earning more than three-quarters of a million dollars in 2007-08, tax records show.
That made him the second-highest paid private college president in Georgia that year, behind only James Wagner at Emory University, according to new rankings published Sunday in The Chronicle of Higher Education. Riekeman also broke into the top 50 nationally for the second year in a row, the rankings show.
The Chronicle’s Web site says only subscribers may view their annual survey of university pay. But I was able to access the information for free through The New York Times.
