Monster Worldwide, the online job site (and, according to their Q4 conference call, a “life improvement engine”), has appointed retired Admiral Edmund P. Giambastiani, Jr. to its board of directors, the company said today.
Giambastiani was the U.S.’ second highest-ranking military officer from 2005 to 2007 as vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
According to a SEC filing, he’ll get 2,500 fully-vested shares of MNST immediately — worth about $73,000 at today’s closing price — and another 2,500 shares on Jan. 31, 2009, assuming he’s still on the board. Release.
