The former First Daughter, currently vice chair of the Clinton Foundation, joins an expanded board at the Bellevue-based online travel company.
Chelsea Clinton has joined Expedia’s board of directors.
Clinton, vice chair of the Clinton Foundation and former First Daughter, becomes the 14th member of the board of the Bellevue-based online travel company, according to documents filed Friday with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The company expanded its board from 13 directors to make a spot for Clinton, the filing says.
Clinton received 1,930 restricted stock units which vest over three years starting next March, the company reported. At the current price of Expedia stock, $131 per share, those are worth more than $252,000.
That’s on top of an annual retainer of $45,000 that non-employee board members receive, according to Expedia’s proxy statement.
