William Dillard 2nd, chief executive officer of Dillard’s Inc., nearly doubled his reported income in 2009 as the Little Rock, Ark.-based department store group returned to profitability.
Dillard’s reported total compensation grew 96.2 percent last year to $4.9 million from $2.5 million in 2008. His salary remained unchanged at $810,000 and, as in 2008, he received neither a bonus nor option awards. However, his stock awards increased more than ninefold, to $454,000 from $48,000, and, based on Dillard’s profitability, he qualified for $812,000 in nonequity incentive plan compensation, versus zero in 2008, when Dillard’s had a net loss, including $197.9 million in pretax charges, of $241.1 million.
Because of vesting schedules and fluctuating stock prices, stock and option awards aren’t necessarily realized by the executives credited with them.
According to the definitive proxy filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission Friday, Dillard’s recorded a change of $2.8 million in pension value and nonqualified deferred compensation, more than half the ceo’s pay, against a change of $1.6 million in 2008. Subtracting this accounting component from Dillard’s earnings, he made $2.2 million last year, 128 percent more than the $945,000 earned in 2008.
Dillard’s logged net income of $68.5 million last year versus its impairment-laden loss in 2008. Revenues contracted 10.8 percent, to $6.09 billion, are fell 10 percent on a same-store basis.
Alex Dillard, president, earned $4.8 million last year, up from $1.3 million in 2008, while Mike Dillard, executive vice president, saw his compensation more than triple to $2.8 million from $917,000.

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.

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)
