Krenicki was in the news last week when General Electric Co. disclosed that he was retiring, and getting a pretty attractive severance.
$89,000 a month -- yes, a month -- until he turns 60.
According to Kim Peterson of MSN Money Now, the severance will add up to more than $10 million, because Krenicki is about 50 years old now.
Pretty sweet deal, if you ask me.
(Just two years later, you'll recall, General Electric sold GE Plastics to Saudi Basic Industries Corp.)
Since he left plastics, Krenicki has been in charge of GE's energy unit. At one point the financial press had speculated that he was a candidate to take over as CEO of the parent company.
Krenicki put in 29 years at General Electric.
