10 of your highest paid neighbors in the Twin Cities


If you have ever wondered who are the richest amongst us, still out there earning the big bucks, then you’re not alone. We’ve all wondered who could actually afford that downtown luxury high-rise, and yet also manages to own a house on Lake Minnetonka, because why pick one or the other when you can have both?

Now just to clarify a few things with this list, not that anyone will lose their marbles over their rankings because frankly they have much bigger things to worry about, like which Ferrari they are driving to work.

OK, that may be an exaggeration. But it’s still fun to imagine that being a daily dilemma.

This list is comprised of a few different sources, all reporting slightly different figures. It should also be noted that these are people that are still working, or recently stepped down as CEO to a board role. We are also not just reporting base salary, but instead we are including the full reported compensation for the past year or so. While this list may not be perfect, it’s as close as we’re going to get! Without further ado, here are of 10 of your richest neighbors in the Twin Cities.
