LVCVA OKs Rossi Raise

Rossi Ralenkotter, president and CEO of the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, will receive an 8 percent raise and a 50 percent bonus as part of his compensation package, the LVCVA has announced.

Last month, members of the board’s compensation committee approved the bump in pay, which will give Ralenkotter a base salary of almost $320,000 a year with a bonus of almost $148,000 for total annual compensation of $467,655. It’s the largest compensation increase the board has ever approved, reported the Las Vegas Sun.

Ralenkotter’s salary is now higher than the base salary of Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval, who earns $149,152; Clark County School Superintendent Pat Skorkowski, who takes home $216,504; and the top two head coaches at the University of Nevada, according to the Transparent Nevada website that tracks the salaries of public officials, the Sun reported.
