(Harrisburg) -- The new executive director of Pennsylvania's Public School Employees' Retirement System is collecting a $215,000 annual salary.

The pay rate is for Glen Grell, who resigned this week from the suburban Harrisburg seat he has held for more than a decade.

The Republican state House member was earning over $85,000 in the Legislature. He's a former member of the pension system board.

He's the new chief executive of America's 20th largest state-sponsored defined benefit public pension fund.

The pension has net assets of almost $52 billion and a membership of 477,000 active and retired school employees.

He will oversee more than 300 employees in the central office in Harrisburg and eight regional offices.
