STL Science Center to Cut Number of VPs
ST. LOUIS (AP) - The St. Louis Science Center is reducing the number of vice presidents to four from nine following several articles by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch and a review of its finances commissioned by an oversight board.
The Post-Dispatch reports that the center will also hire a consulting firm to help determine
appropriate compensation for the restructured leadership team.
The science center is publicly funded, receiving property tax money in St. Louis city and county.
In 2010, the center paid 10 vice presidents more than $1.8 million in total compensation. One of those positions already has been eliminated.
In a brief statement, the center didn't say whether any of the current nine vice presidents would fill the four restructured slots, or if current vice presidents would be fired or demoted.
