During 2016, the compensation committee granted Messrs. Buckman, Farrelly, Hagerty, Johnson, Macchia, Sloan and Stull each 1,954 shares of restricted stock for their service on the Board of Directors during 2016, which vested on January 1, 2017. The value for stock awards in this column represents the grant date fair value for the stock award granted in 2016, computed in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 718.
Messrs. Buckman, Farrelly, Hagerty, Johnson, Macchia, Sloan and Stull did not hold any stock option awards as of December 31, 2016. Ms. Moddelmog joined the Board in 2017 and thus did not receive Director compensation in 2016.
DIRECTOR QUALIFICATIONS
The qualifications for directors are described in our corporate governance guidelines, which is available on our website. The following factors, among others, are assessed when considering a director’s or nominee’s qualifications:
the highest personal and professional ethics, integrity, values, ability and judgment;
understanding our business environment;
ability to make independent analytical inquiries and judgments;
skills and experience in the context of the needs of the Board;
breadth of business and organizational skills, background, experience, and diversity;
the number of other public company Boards on which each director serves to consider whether such other board service impairs the director’s service by unduly limiting the director’s attendance, participation or effectiveness; and
“independence” as contemplated by applicable legal and regulatory requirements and in accordance with our guidelines and standards.
Our corporate governance guidelines provide that no director should serve on more than four other public company boards, unless the compensation committee determines otherwise. Directors are expected to advise the Chairman of the Board and the chair of the compensation committee in advance of accepting an invitation to serve on another public company board.
The Board of Directors does not believe that it should limit the number of terms for which a person may serve as a director or require a mandatory retirement age, because such limits could deprive us of the valuable contributions made by a director who develops, over time, significant insights into FleetCor and its operations.
 
The re-nomination of existing directors is not viewed as automatic, but is based on continuing qualification under the criteria stated above. In addition, the committee considers the existing directors’ performance on the Board and any committee.
