23 Shades of Gray: High-level income in the business world

For the past two seasons, Amy Baker has been employed by Larry O’Brien and James Dolan’s Madison Square Garden Company, overseeing Madison Square Garden’s’ “event property” division, which includes Knicks & Rangers tickets, event packaging, live entertainment and more. She earned $6.8 million in 2017, and more than $7 million last year. After Hurricane Sandy, and putting in 23 hour days in the midst of the storm, she “might have missed a few” days of work, the report notes. “But” – perhaps to cover up her impressive living situation – “a friend calls to tell her that a friend’s mother had just passed and if she needs assistance with the funeral.”

Former Laker Paul Shaver is now overseeing Cablevision’s Madison Square Garden Sports, which oversees all MSG-owned sports teams, including the New York Knicks, New York Rangers, New York Liberty, and the NY Rangers arena. He has five nieces and a nephews, ranging in age from 22 to 24, from which he takes in $154,000 a year. “It is unusual for a professional sports executive to have several nieces and nephews,” and it is a job Shaver learned through coaching. He was often the family’s source of money, and moved often himself. He “also signed a lease for 2,700 square feet of space in Spring Valley, NY, which he rented for a small monthly fee.” Shaver’s ticket payment? $7,431.

Carl McCall has been appointed to run CIRCOR’s facilities at World’s Fair grounds in Queens, NY. He has “earned $560,000,” including $135,000 in “performance-based incentive compensation.” McCall is well off by most people’s standards, but he chose to travel all over the country to babysit his eight nieces and four nephews. “On the recommendation of his wife, a former executive director of the Young Lawyers Division of the New York Bar Association, McCall suggested hiring a nanny.”

Andrea Jones was once a Madison Square Garden in-house lawyer who, at the urging of Dolan, “was placed in a non-advertising executive position” at the Forum (arena grounds) “to help manage the venue.” Dolan even tried to increase her attendance, from just 30 people to “100 and more,” which she took as a sign that MSG should increase her salary. Jones “has received four million,” mostly “spending money.”
