Hamish’s $8m goodbye from Ten

While Hamish McLennan may left Ten on an upwards trajectory, his exit certainly didn’t do his personal finances any harm.

McLennan: Exited Ten with $8m in 2015

Numbers released by Ten today reveal that McLennan received a total of more than $2.4m in termination benefits. On top of his normal salary and benefits, the 2015 financial year saw McLennan clock up a total of $8,040,923 – well up on the previous year’s package of $2.5m.

It wasn’t too bad a year for Hamish’s successor as CEO Paul Anderson either. The network’s former chief operating officer trousered $1.7m, up from $1.1m.

And the success of programming boss Beverley McGarvey was also rewarded, with a cash bonus of $112,500 topping up her package to nearly $1.2m.
