Seattle-based Internet jeweler Blue Nile said Wednesday it has increased the size of its board of directors and appointed former Aeropostale executive Mindy Meads as a new member.
Meads, 61, will stand for election at Blue Nile’s annual shareholder meeting next Tuesday in Seattle.
Meads was co-chief executive of clothing retailer Aeropostale from February 2010 to April 2011 and its president for the previous three years. She also has been CEO at Victoria’s Secret Direct and Lands’ End.
Blue Nile said she would receive the same pay package as other non-employee directors, including a $40,000 annual retainer, initial stock grant worth $100,000 and $63,000 annually in restricted stock.
