Daughter of Hillary Clinton, who will also author childrens book She Persisted, could earn $250,000-$300,000 a year in role
Chelsea Clinton is joining the board of directors of online travel booking site Expedia, according to documents filed with federal authorities this week.
Documents filed with securities regulators say the daughter of Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state and former Democratic presidential candidate, has joined its 14-member board. The company is controlled by Barry Diller, the businessman who made billions as a television executive. Chelsea Clinton is also a director of another company that Diller controls, IAC/InterActiveCorp.
Expedia did not disclose how much Clinton would be paid, but non-employee directors each earned more than $250,000 in 2015, according to the most recent regulatory filings.
Filings for IAC say Chelsea Clinton is entitled to receive $300,000 in a mix of stock and cash each year for serving as a director.
The Expedia filing on Friday came a day after publishers Penguin Young Readers announced it will publish a childrens book by Chelsea Clinton on 30 May. The book is called She Persisted.
In the book, Penguin Young Readers said, Clinton will honor 13 American women who never take no for an answer, including Harriet Tubman, Sonia Sotomayor and Oprah Winfrey.
