Estée Lauder tempts CEO to stay the distance with huge long-term equity award

Estée Lauder upped CEO Fabrizio Freda’s compensation package nearly three-fold to US$48.4 million last year, thanks to a long-term equity award aimed at coaxing the top executive to remain with the company for the long haul, according to a report published by Bloomberg.

The stock award granted in September 2015 will fully vest in 2023, but in meantime has increased the value of Freda’s stock awards from US$6.25 million in 2014 to US$36.8 million last year.

According to a regulatory filing made by the company, the award ‘reflects the desire to retain Mr. Freda and further align his interests with the interests of our stockholders’.
