Emulex Management Gets a Raise

What does it take to keep you happy at your company? For the Emulex management team, it apparently takes a sizable base salary and lots of remuneration on top.

In an SEC filing today, Emulex declared new base salaries for its top five execs. And in all but one case, the raises were substantial -- at least from my perspective in the considerably lower trenches.

James M. McCluney, CEO and president, will be paid $572,450 this year, up 40 percent over his 2006 base salary. Michael J. Rockenbach, EVP and CFO, will get $229,596 this year, up 8 percent. Marshall D. Lee, EVP of engineering, will get $307,204, up 11 percent. And EVP of worldwide sales William F. Gil will get $291,005, 19 percent more than last year.

Executive chairman Paul F. Folino gets the tiniest raise: He'll make $590,527 instead of $588,150. But no worries: His bonus money in 2006 totaled $366,807. Then again, his base compensation, including salary, bonuses, and reimbursement for insurance premiums, didn't quite make a million at $973,890.

All of these guys stand to make a ton of dough in bonuses. As today's filing states: "The quarterly target award opportunity for the executives range from 35% to 90% of quarterly base."
