Aéropostale Inc. chairman and chief executive officer Julian Geiger registered a 57.6 percent bump in total compensation last year to $14.2 million, up from $9 million 2007. The raise was due primarily to a 174.6 percent jump in the ceo’s stock and options awards, which increased to just under $7 million from $2.5 million in the prior year, according to a regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Stock and option awards are reported based on SEC accounting guidelines, and the amounts in these categories were not necessarily realized because of vesting schedules and changing stock prices. Geiger’s salary and non-equity incentive plan compensation both remained unchanged, totaling $1 million and $3 million, respectively. Geiger’s other compensation totaled $14,746, including $8,500 for a car allowance.
