(d) Election of New Director
On September 9, 2013, Questar's board of directors elected Rebecca Ranich, 56, to serve as a director of the Company effective October 1, 2013 until the next annual shareholders meeting in May 2014, at which time her continued service will be subject to shareholder approval. Ms. Ranich is a former energy executive with more than 25 years of leadership experience in the energy industry. She was most recently a director with Deloitte Consulting LLP, where she led the organization's Federal Government Energy Advisory and Sustainability services.
Ms. Ranich will receive an annual retainer of $50,000 for her membership on the Board prorated to the effective day of her appointment as a director. Ms. Ranich will also receive 1,764 restricted share units of Company stock to vest on March 5, 2014, consistent with the vesting of equity grants to the Company's other directors.
The Board has determined that Ms. Ranich is independent under the applicable listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange. There is no arrangement or understanding between Ms. Ranich and any other person pursuant to which she was elected as a director of the Company. Additionally, there is no transaction between Ms. Ranich and the Company that would require disclosure under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.
