Frontier To Pay Directors More

Sat Jul 30, 2005 10:01 pm

Is this a common practice amongst most airlines?

It looks like each director will receive $20,000 for service on the board, and the option to purchase 5,000 shares of stock. Add to that free flights and reimbursement for travel. Not a bad deal.

It is the norm and not the exception with all companies, not just airlines.

Yea, all you have to do is attend monthly to quarterly meetings, keep the stock-holders happy and kiss-up to the CEO so he doesn't bring up people you hate. What a job!

Anyone know how active the BOD at Frontier is, or do they pretty much give the CEO free reign?

Unlike many US companies, the CEO (Potter) is not Chairman of the Board.

The Chairman is the previous CEO, Sam Addoms. Jeff Potter is his protege, his pupil and hs chosen successor, so the two work closely together.

But because the functions are split, there are checks and balances on the CEO.
