Rehab Group will meet today to decide if they will disclose CEO's salary

Angela Kerins salary came under scrutiny last month amid claims of minuscule profits from the group’s scratchcard scheme.

A SPECIAL MEETING of top executives at Rehab Group will decide today on whether or not to reveal CEO Angela Kerins’ salary.

The three-week wait for the meeting was previously branded as “too long” by Oireacthas Health Committee chairman Jerry Buttimer, who had invited other Section 38 organisations to publish their funding models.

In a statement last month, group chairman at the not-for-profit disability organisation Brian Kerr said that disclosing Kerins’ salary was not a matter for her to decide, but for the board.

Kerr stressed that a statement on the matter will be issued immediately after the meeting.

Current pay

Figures from 2011 show Kerins earned €234,000, but when asked about her current pay in the wake of the top-ups controversy, she declined to answer.

She said her salary had been declared on a number of occasions already.

Rehab Group last month called on Minister for Justice Alan Shatter to withdraw remarks in which he claimed close to €4 million worth of Rehab lottery scratch cards sales earned just €9,452 profit in 2010.
