Charles Grindle is now being paid $375,000 a year in his job as executive director of the Commonwealth Office of Technology, according to the state government’s online database of employee salaries.

That salary makes him the highest-paid employee within the Bevin administration, making more than double what Bevin makes ($145,992).
