Uh no, the share went from 54% to 57%.
What, was he born yesterday?
Executive? $112,000 might not be chump change, but he's clearly nowhere near the top of the totem pole. The "6 cities" thing leads me to believe he's probably a scout. A scout who might be lucky to wake up tomorrow and still have a job. Can't be hard to track him down - plenty of details about his background, and all you have to do is work backwards from his salary.
Someone should have asked whether he thinks he'll still have a job tomorrow.
Believe it or not, sports teams pay their business people (sales, marketing, accounting, IT, project management) below market value or at the low end of market value. $112,000 is about what I'd expect them to pay a VP of, say, marketing. They can do that because it's an exciting business that a lot of people want to be a part of that looks astounding on a resume.
