Sir Stelios hits out at easyJet pay decisions

first_img Share Sir Stelios hits out at easyJet pay decisions KCS-content whatsapp Thursday 10 February 2011 9:03 pm EASYJET’S largest shareholder Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou has spoken out against an ex-chief executive’s pay, in the latest flare-up between the budget airline and its founder that could cause fireworks at next week’s AGM. Sir Stelios, whose family owns a 38 per cent stake in easyJet, wrote to chairman Michael Rake to complain that former chief executive Andy Harrison was paid £2.2m between April and September 2010, despite leaving his full-time post in July. “The main criticism… is that by insulating the pay of Harrison from the actual results in the 2009 deal, he gave the CEO the right to destroy shareholder value in the summer of 2010 with impunity,” Sir Stelios said.Harrison, who is now the chief executive of Whitbread, replied in a statement: “As chief executive of easyJet, my job was to implement the strategy agreed by the board.“All aspects of my remuneration were determined by the remuneration committee and to the best of my knowledge were communicated to the full board.”Sir Stelios wrote that he plans to vote against a resolution to approve directors’ pay at the shareholder meeting next Thursday, and will also abstain from a vote to re-elect David Michels as senior independent director. EasyJet shares, which took a battering last month after forecasting £160m half-year losses, fell 2.2 per cent yesterday to close at 380.5p.

CAFAmerica launches grant top-up opportunity for UK charities

first_img Tagged with: Giving/Philanthropy CAFAmerica launches grant top-up opportunity for UK charities Dr Susan Saxon-Harrold, Chief Executive Officer of CAFAmerica, said: “CAFAmerica is keen to stimulate giving on an international scale and this is a great opportunity for charities in the UK to maximise their income from US donors. With very little effort on their part, we can really help charities get involved in fundraising from America. If a charity finds it has donors that have never used CAFAmerica’s services before and it encourages them to use us, they will qualify for this one-off incentive top-up. It doesn’t matter if they are new or long term supporters; individuals, companies or grant-makers. With Thanksgiving, Christmas and the end of the US tax year, this is a great time for UK charities (including those in arts, health and education) that may not have considered fundraising from the US to give it a go.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis  24 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThiscenter_img Howard Lake | 16 December 2003 | News CAFAmerica has launched a new grant top-up programme that could enable registered charities in the UK to increase the value of donations received from American donors by up to $5,000 per grant.The opportunity can only be used if the US donor is a first time user of CAFAmerica’s services and the recipient charity in the UK has been assessed as eligible to receive gifts from CAFAmerica. For this to happen, UK charities will need to complete and return a Grant Eligibility Application from the organisation’s Web site.Once assessment is complete, charities are then listed on a database in the US that potential American donors can access when looking for possible grant recipients. Because of US ‘Due Diligence’ requirements, eligibility has to be reassessed periodically and in the case of UK charities, this takes place every three years.

Too often we find that people have a perception that older people are traditional, and aren’t open to new experiences. This is a great opportunity for the participants to express themselves in a new way and we hope it’ll encourage older people to feel empowered and show that life isn’t over when you get older.”  253 total views,  1 views today Melanie May | 14 August 2018 | News About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

The Indiana State FFA Convention in June is shifting to the Indiana State Fairgrounds and will welcome the blue jackets to be on the ground there.Indiana FFA director Sam Miller said the Covid factor forced the move.“Traditionally we are at Purdue University and that just wasn’t able to work out due to the Covid restrictions, but we were very set on having an in-person state convention opportunity for our students,” she told HAT. “They just deserve to be able to have some type of experience to get back to a normal life and not be in front of a computer yet again for another event. So, that meant a lot of creativity on our team’s part and brainstorming, ok where can we go in the state of Indiana that makes logistic sense for our schools, that makes money sense for our organization to put on an event.”The new venue can host enough students that it makes sense to stage the convention. Home base will be the Expo Hall June 15-17, 2021. Purdue University had been home to the convention for 91 years prior to going all virtual last year.Miller says the biggest change will be limited seating, “being in a different venue and having to still do some social distancing pieces. So, we do have just 1,200 people who will be able to join us during each individual session.”But Indiana FFA is doing all it can to replicate much of past state conventions.“The session content, how we’re going to handle each session, the atmosphere you’ll feel during the session, the energy that the state officers will bring, the sponsors remarks, the recognizing of the achievements of our members, that will all be the same,” Miller said. “We will still have the convention spread out over a Tuesday through a Thursday. It’s still six sessions. The content of each session is the same, and we’re expecting approximately the same length of each session.”Each session will again be streamed this year.
