Brightpoint CFO leaves with $2.75M pay package

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

A veteran Brightpoint Inc. executive who left the company on Tuesday received separation pay totaling $2.75 million, according to a Securities and Exchange Commission filing.

Anthony Boor joined the Indianapolis-based wireless phone distributor in 1998 and had served as its chief financial officer and treasurer since October 2005.

He was paid $490,000 on Tuesday and will receive an additional $2.26 million in November, six months and one day after his departure date, the filing said.

Boor also will receive annual retirement benefits totaling $77,274.

In a Tuesday press release announcing the appointment of Boor’s successor, Brightpoint provided no reason for his departure, except to say the company had entered into a “mutual separation agreement” with him.

Last year, Boor earned $535,000 in base salary and $2.3 million overall when including stock awards and bonuses, according to the company’s latest proxy statement.

Calls to Brightpoint were not returned Wednesday morning.

Boor was replaced by Vincent Donargo, who has served as Brightpoint’s chief accounting officer and controller since 2005, the company said in a written statement.

Brightpoint reported impressive first-quarter earnings last month, posting profit of $9.3 million, or 13 cents a share, versus $1.4 million, or 2 cents a share, in the year-ago period.

The company said its earnings increased more than sixfold as the growing demand for smartphones meant that more higher-priced devices passed through its facilities.

Brightpoint shares opened trading Wednesday morning at $9.05 each, down from a 52-week high of $13.22 reached in February.

  1. Why should I a home owner pay for this"car sharing" ????

  2. By the way, the right to work law is intended to prevent forced union membership, not as a way to keep workers in bondage as you make it sound, Italiano. If union leadership would spend all of their funding on the workers, who they are supposed to be representing, instead of trying to buy political favor and living lavish lifestyles as a result of the forced membership, this law would never had been necessary.

  3. Unions once served a noble purpose before greed and apathy took over. Now most unions are just as bad or even worse than the ills they sought to correct. I don't believe I have seen a positive comment posted by you. If you don't like the way things are done here, why do you live here? It would seem a more liberal environment like New York or California would suit you better?

  4. just to clear it up... Straight No Chaser is an a capella group that formed at IU. They've toured nationally typically doing a capella arangements of everything from Old Songbook Standards to current hits on the radio.

  5. This surprises you? Mayor Marine pulled the same crap whenhe levered the assets of the water co up by half a billion $$$ then he created his GRAFTER PROGRAM called REBUILDINDY. That program did not do anything for the Ratepayors Water Infrastructure Assets except encumber them and FORCE invitable higher water and sewer rates on Ratepayors to cover debt coverage on the dough he stole FROM THE PUBLIC TRUST. The guy is morally bankrupt to the average taxpayer and Ratepayor.
