We’ve been so busy that we missed the fact that earlier this month HSN filed its proxy statement with the SEC, which includes the compensation that execs at the No. 2 home shopping network received last year.
In the case of CEO Mindy Grossman, her comp was $4.9 million, just a hair less than in 2014. Her salary was $1.2 million the same as last year, and she also received stock awards and options.
COO and CFO Judy Schmeling took in $1.8 million in executive compensation in 2015, down from $2.1 million the prior year.
And Bill Brand, HSN president and chief marketing officer for HSN Inc., received executive compensation of $1.6 million, down from $1.9 million in 2014.
By way of comparison, under his new contract Mike George, president and CEO of QVC Inc., this year will be getting a base salary of $1.25 million — but that’s just his base.
