Best-Paid State Workers Aren’t Necessarily the Ones You’d Expect
Depends on how one counts, but Alain E. Kaloyeros, the well-regarded professor at SUNY's University at Albany and chief administrative officer of its College of Nanoscale Science and Engineering , makes the largest base salary.
Dr. Kaloyeros, 51, left, drives a black 2004 Ferrari 360 Spider and earns a cool $525,000 a year. Born in Beirut to a Lebanese French mother and a Greek father, he does have a formidable résumé — look no further than the Ph.D. in experimental condensed matter physics from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.
He is also a visible figure in the capital, credited with helping transform the Albany region into a high-technology hub and a research center for his particular bailiwick, nanotechnology. And he is frequently courted by foreign countries and the governors of other states; a person other than Dr. Kaloyeros who is familiar with his employment situation said that it would not be a surprise if he left his post soon for a job outside the state.
