NEW YORK, December 22 (newratings.com) – Pfizer Inc (PFE.NYS), the world’s largest drugmaker, Thursday said in a regulatory filing that its outgoing CEO, Hank McKinnell, would receive nearly $198 million in total compensation.

The company, in its recent regulatory filing with the SEC, said that McKinnell will receive $12 million in severance payments, a $2 million pro-rated bonus for 2006, $6 million in restricted stock payments and $18 million in other stock payments.

McKinnell has been succeeded by Jeffrey Kindler as Pfizer’s new Chairman and CEO. McKinnell is to exit the board of directors in February. The company’s share price had declined by nearly 40% during McKinnell’s tenure as Chairman.

LaTonya Gibbs: MindFreedom Office Rock Star and Mental Health Consumer

LaTonya says, "I love working for such an 'insanely supportive' organization. MindFreedom is a touchstone for a lot of different commissions that are fighting for human rights, both locally and internationally. This is also an office that practices what it preaches. The director and staff are intent on not letting its members or it's employees lose themselves while trying to 'make a living', if we can help it. We're all human beings and that comes first here." LaTonya works in the MindFreedom office and is a mental health consumer.
