Come on, guess!
it’s a football coach.
UGA football coaching staff get even more compensation than Paul Bowers, CEO of Georgia Power,
or Thomas A. Fanning, CEO of the Southern Company, let alone any
insignificant college president or elected official.
The Southern Company (NYSE: SO) Chairman, President and CEO Thomas Fanning got a 62 percent jump to $9.75 million last year, according to an SEC filing. He got $6.02 million in 2010.
Fanning, who has led the Atlanta-based energy company since December 2010, received a base annual salary of $1.06 million, shares worth $2.25 million, stock options worth $1.50 million, $2.46 million in non-equity incentive and $2.42 million representing a change in pension value and nonqualified deferred compensation.
