San Diego Opera boss: I held two jobs, my wife had onemain
Ian Campbell, who this week announced the closure of San Diego Opera, has been explaining the generosity of his compensation.
The local ABC affiliate found that Campbell earned around $508,000 in 2012, on the high side for the boss of a failing arts ensemble. “It is significant, there’s no question,” Campbell said. “But I do two jobs — I’m artistic director and general director.”
Campbell’s wife Ann, also on the payroll, earned $282,345 in 2012. Nice work.
