Martha rejoins her namesake board
Martha Stewart has rejoined the board of directors of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, the company has announced. Her addition will expand the number of directors to nine members.
Stewart has been officially absent from the company she founded because of a five-year Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) ban on serving as a board member or an executive of a public company. The SEC prohibition was part of a settlement over insider-trading charges for which Stewart served five months in prison.
