James O’Donnell, American Eagle Outfitters Inc.’s former chief executive officer, saw his total compensation in his final year as ceo rise 56.3 percent to $14.4 million last year. That included salary of $1.7 million, nonequity incentive pay of $1.1 million, stock options valued at $5.7 million, retirement pay of $3.6 million, severance of $1.6 million, as well as $552,500 in consulting fees related to succession.
O’Donnell, who handed the ceo reins to former Levi Strauss & Co. executive Robert Hanson in January, might not realize the full value of his stock awards, given vesting schedules and changes to the company’s stock price.
