A group of four SUNY Polytechnic Institute executives who were laid off in the wake of the indictment of SUNY Poly chief Alain Kaloyeros last year earned more than $100,000 in combined severance, according to personnel records published this week by The Alt.

Each of the former officials -- Carl Kempf III, former vice president of policy and regulatory affairs; Jerrry Gretzinger, vice president of strategic communications and public relations; Christine Waller, associate vice president of sponsored programs, and Dinna Eskin, associate vice president of policy and regulatory affairs -- signed separation agreements with SUNY Research Foundation and had personnel records marked "discharge/lay off." 

The former officials all received lump sum "separation payments" under the agreements, ranging from nearly $40,000 for Gretzinger to just under $19,000 for Eskin. Kempf received more than $31,000, and Waller got more than $25,000. They each also received thousands more in payouts for unused vacation days.

As part of the agreements, the former employees agreed to nondisclosure clauses and renounced the right to make legal claims against the foundation.  

SUNY Research Foundation spokesman Peter Taubkin did not return a request for comment.
