Welwyn Hatfield Council’s biggest earners

THE annual salaries of senior officers at Welwyn Hatfield Council have been published for the first time.

New regulations introduced this year now make it obligatory for local authorities to disclose to the public how much staff earning more than �50,000, but less than �150,000, get paid.

In the last fiscal year, chief executive Michel Saminaden was paid �102,000, with strategy and development director Chris Conway earning �79,000.

Director of finance and operations Bob Jewell was paid �77,000, as was Bob Baldock, director of governance.

Two employees, chief community and environmental services officer Richards Masters, and Terence Osborne, chief partnership and performance officer, both left their �78,000-a-year jobs in 2009.
