Beginning her tenure on April 23 after 30 years with Johnson & Johnson, McCoy earned a total of $12.9 million, including a prorated $832,000 of her annual salary of $1.2 million, and a $1.9 million sign-on bonus to take the job, as stipulated in her offer letter from Avon.
The largest part of McCoy’s total compensation came in the form of stock awards, with a grant date fair value of $9.4 million. Of this amount, about $4.3 million was to compensate the new ceo for “forfeiting a significant amount of value in unvested equity and other benefits” resulting from her departure from J&J.
Additionally, McCoy received $591,000 as a cash bonus — nonequity incentive plan compensation — for her achievements during her stay at Avon in 2012, including initial actions on the company’s turnaround and expense reduction program. These details came to light as Avon disclosed its definite proxy to the Securities and Exchange Commission late Tuesday.
Jung, who relinquished the title of ceo upon McCoy’s arrival and stepped down as chairman at the end of the calendar year, earned $6.4 million from Avon last year, including $1.1 million in salary and $5.1 million in stock awards. Her annual salary was reduced to $1 million from $1.4 million when she relinquished the job of ceo.
Because of vesting schedules and fluctuating stock prices, stock and option awards aren’t necessarily realized by the executives to whom they are attributed, but are reported to the SEC at grant date fair value.
Avon last year posted a loss of $42.5 million, versus a profit of $513.6 million in 2011, as revenues dipped 5.1 percent to $10.72 billion. While it won’t face enforcement action from the SEC based on its contact with security analysts, the agency continues to investigate allegations that it bribed government officials in China.

For the holidays, @Burberry partnered with 20-year-old artist @blondeymccoy on a series of three outdoor murals in downtown Manhattan. The murals are McCoy’s interpretation of a Christmas eve party, the idea of charity and the spirit of family. His third mural, pictured here, is the most personal. The image depicts McCoy’s grandparents and father in London’s Trafalgar Square in the Seventies. “My work often features lots of sentimental objects.” #wwdeye

In a partnership between the @metopera and the @englishnationalopera, “Marnie” was born. The opera, with costumes sponsored by @mrporterlive, is an adaptation of the 1961 thriller by Winston Graham. Arianne Phillips, who created the costumes, is no rookie: She’s styled Madonna for her tours and created costumes for a myriad of films in the past. Read WWD’s interview with Phillips, where she talks about her inspiration for the opera’s costumes on WWD.com #wwdfashion
@barneysnyc took a different approach to their holiday windows this year. Instead of Christmas decor, Barneys tapped @thehaasbrothers to tell a story of positivity, gratitude and inclusivity via heartwarming silliness and humor. “It’s about kids and it’s about coming together and being family and loving each other,” said Simon Haas. #wwdfashion (📷: @joshuascottphoto)
