Thinking of a Career in Culture? Here's De Montebello's Payout - September 18, 2007 - The New York Sun
Thinking of a Career in Culture? Here's De Montebello's Payout - September 18, 2007 - The New York Sun: "Museum leadership has become a kind of star system, in which a small group of directors can pull in seven-figure bonuses from boards eager to hang onto the talent. Last year, the director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Philippe de Montebello, received a $3.25 million one-time payment as a reward for having stayed at the museum through his 70th birthday. His total compensation for the year was $4,557,342, making him the top earner in the Chronicle of Philanthropy's annual survey of nonprofit executive compensation, beating out presidents of major hospitals and universities."
