    The most intriguing part of this story for me is how President Rosenberg’s salary has gone down while others have gone up (or have mostly left). Probably should’ve been in the headline and would love more info on these salary trends. All this article seems to do is translate a spreadsheet into an inverted pyramid.

    All the best!
