Penn President Amy Gutmann’s salary has increased 21 percent to $3,426,106, according to the most recently available tax data.

For the second year in a row, Gutmann remains Penn’s highest paid employee. During the previous fiscal year, she lagged behind Ralph Muller, CEO of the University of Pennsylvania Health System.

Muller, who maintains his position as Penn’s second-highest compensated employee, holds a $2,464,236 compensation package for the 2014 fiscal year.

Gutmann’s compensation package the previous year was $2,820,452. Her salary has been steadily increasing since she became the University’s president in 2004 and has more than doubled in the last four years.

The salaries of Penn administrators are determined by the Board of Trustees, which is chaired by David L. Cohen. The Daily Pennsylvanian expects to publish a complete report of comparable salaries at other Ivy League universities within the next week.

Penn’s third-highest compensated administrator was J. Larry Jameson, dean of the Perelman School of Medicine and executive vice president of UPHS, with a salary listed at $2,360,797.

Other highly paid employees included doctors and surgeons at Penn’s hospitals, several with salaries topping $1.5 million, as well as administrators working with Penn’s alumni relations and finance departments.

Wharton Dean Geoffrey Garrett was appointed to his position last year, so his compensation was not included in Penn’s most recently available tax information. Former Wharton Dean Thomas Robertson had a salary of $771,956 — about a quarter of a million dollars more than the Dean of the School of Arts and Sciences Steven Fluharty, whose salary was $522,634. No other deans were listed among Penn’s highest-paid employees in the most recent tax forms.

Other administrators whose salaries were available in the tax data included Provost Vincent Price, who made $880,713 last year, Vice President for Public Safety Maureen Rush, who made $350,395, Executive Vice President Craig Carnaroli, who made $1,131,232 and Vice President of Facilities and Real Estate Services Anne Papageorge, who made $500,061.
