HSN CEO Mindy Grossman Made $5.6 Million Last Year

There’s nothing that delights a financial reporter more than seeing that a public company such as HSN has filed a proxy statement. That’s because these documents include executive compensation.

We usually read them and weep, regretting our decision to go into journalism instead of becoming a corporate bigwig like Mindy Grossman.

HSN’s CEO last year received total compensation of $5,628,679, actually a drop down from her 2011 comp of $6,179,244, according to a filing Monday with the Securities and Exchange Commission.


Grossman, 55, in 2012 received a base salary of $1.2 million, the same as the prior year. But her “non-equity incentive plan compensation” dropped to $1,140,000 from $1.8 million in 2011.

Grossman also received $288,667 in other compensation, which included $286,345 in relocation expenses.

Judy Schmeling, HSN’s chief financial officer, also took a small haircut on her pay.

Last year she received $1,601,332 in executive compensation, with a $650,000 base salary, up from $575,000 in 2011. Her non-equity incentive plan comp also declined, to $561,314 from $835,993.

Not too shabby, girlfriends.

    Not too shabby for a woman, but I bet if it were a man the salary would be even higher.

    Based on the crappy results at both QVC and HSN I would say both CEOs are incredibly overpaid and overrated.
