No April Fools: Breier Gets $3.5 million in Restricted Stock
Kindred CEO Ben Breier received 283,203 shares of restricted stock on March 24, 2016. Kindred's stock closed at $12.57 per share on April 1 giving Breier $3.5 million from one portion of his executive compensation package. That's no April Fool's joke but a sad reflection of misplaced priorities.
Hospice roots are antithetical to leadership greed which spread like a cancer in the last ten to fifteen years. Ethically our hospice site is dead, rotting from the head down. Fortunately, we still have a few people who live and breath the origins of the hospice movement. When they leave or retire the stink will spread.
The question is how much Ben Breier will have earned in total compensation by then. We'll get a peek at his 2015 pay soon enough. The executive money trough is full and overflowing. I bet the pigs don't even need calling.
