On April 14, 2016, the board of directors of lululemon athletica inc. appointed Jon McNeill as a member of the board of directors. Mr. McNeill is the President of Global Sales, Delivery and Service of Tesla Motors, Inc. Prior to joining Tesla, Mr. McNeill was the CEO of Enservio, Inc., a software company, from 2006 until 2015 and has founded multiple technology and retail companies including TruMotion, Sterling, First Notice Systems, and Trek Bicycle Stores, Inc. Mr. McNeill began his career at Bain & Company and he is a graduate of Northwestern University. Our board of directors believes his executive experience and innovative and entrepreneurial attributes will provide valuable insight to our board of directors and is aligned with our unique culture.
The board of directors increased the size of the board from 11 to 12 members and appointed Mr. McNeill as a Class III director to fill the newly-created vacancy. Because Mr. McNeill will serve as a member of the class of directors whose terms expire at the 2016 annual meeting of stockholders, our stockholders of record will have the opportunity to vote on his nomination as a continuing Class III director for the meeting on June 2, 2016.
Mr. McNeill will receive compensation for his service as a director consistent with that of our other non-employee directors. A description of our standard compensation arrangements for non-employee directors is included in our proxy statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on April 21, 2015. We expect Mr. McNeill to enter into our standard form indemnification agreement for non-employee directors, the form of which is filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission as Exhibit 10.16 to our Registration Statement on Form S-1 dated July 9, 2007.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
