Posted: Updated:

The Arizona Commerce Authority is awarding its CEO a nearly $69,000 bonus based on performance on top of her $250,000 salary.

The Arizona Capitol Times reports that the authority's executive committee decided that CEO Sandra Watson met goals that made her eligible for nearly all of a possible $75,000 bonus.

Those goals included attracting jobs and capital investment to Arizona, obtaining match funds for a branding campaign and securing federal grants.
