    Your sentence needs 'at' or 'in' at the end.

    Is "highly designated" a correct term to use?

    No.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Hi, Tufguy!

    Don't use any form of the word designate. It makes no sense there. You can look it up to learn what it means.

    Re: He is being paid handsomly and is highly designated.

    I wonder if the word tufguy wanted to use was "distinguished".

    Or highly:

    - regarded
    - respected
    - thought of
    - appreciated
    - valued
    - paid!
