ITEM 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers
On August 16, 2017, Nordstrom, Inc. appointed Kelley Hall, age 45, as Senior Vice President, Chief Accounting Officer and Treasurer of the Company commencing August 21, 2017.  From August 2016 to August 2017, Ms. Hall served as Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of NIKE, Inc.'s Enterprise Operations, where she led finance teams supporting a number of business groups, including supply chain, technology and procurement. From October 2008 to August 2016, Ms. Hall held a variety of senior leadership roles at NIKE, Inc. where she led Corporate Finance, Treasury, Tax, Investor Relations and Global Business Planning. Prior to joining NIKE, Inc., Ms. Hall held a variety of senior leadership roles at Starbucks Corporation from 1994 to 2008, including Vice President roles supporting U.S. Retail Finance and Corporate Finance.
In connection with her employment, Ms. Hall will be paid an annual base salary of $510,000 and will be eligible to receive bonus compensation under the annual cash bonus plan for the fiscal year 2017 previously approved by the Company’s Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) of the Board of Directors (“Board”) with a target bonus of 50% of annual base salary for the current fiscal year on a pro-rated basis. In addition, on August 16, 2017, the Committee also determined to award restricted stock units (“RSUs”) to Ms. Hall, effective August 21, 2017, which is the first open window trading period on or after her start date and Committee approval. The number of RSUs to be awarded will have a value equal to Ms. Hall’s annual base salary and, upon vesting, will entitle her to receive an equivalent number of shares of Company Common Stock. Vesting occurs at a rate of one-third (1/3) annually, beginning one year from the tenth day of the month immediately following the date of grant. The award of RSUs is pursuant to the form of award agreement previously approved by the Committee and filed as Exhibit 10.2 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on February 23, 2017. The number of RSUs actually granted to Ms. Hall is not determinable at this time. Once determinable, the number of RSUs will be reported in an amendment to this Current Report on Form 8-K. In addition, Ms. Hall will receive a one-time lump sum cash transition support payment in the amount of $250,000.
Ms. Hall will be eligible to participate in the Company’s benefits as may be offered from time to time to other similarly situated employees including relocation assistance and participation in the Company’s 401(k) plan with Company match and the Company’s Employee Stock Purchase Plan.
There are no family relationships between Ms. Hall and any director or executive officer of the Company, and she has no direct or indirect material interest in any transaction required to be disclosed pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.
Upon the effective date of Ms. Hall’s employment, Michael Maher will resign from the position of Interim Principal Accounting Officer of the Company, a position he has held since June 3, 2017. Mr. Maher will continue in his position as Senior Vice President, Finance of the Company.
