Southern District Health Board chief executive Carole
Heatly was paid between $120,000 and $129,999 in her first four
months in the job.
The State Services Commissioner yesterday released chief
executive payments for 2011-12.
Ms Heatly took the helm on March 5, so her salary information
covers from then until June 30. Her salary appears less
generous than that of predecessor, Brian Rousseau who, in the
two and a-half months to September 16, when he left for a job
in Australia, was paid $200,000 to $209,999. That amount
included final entitlements to Mr Rousseau of $32,825.
No salary information is provided from September 16 to March

Mr Rousseau was paid $510,000 to $520,000 in 2010-11.
Board chairman Joe Butterfield declined to comment, when
