Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers
On June 11, 2021, William P. Foley, II, a director and Chairman of the Board of Black Knight, Inc. (“Black Knight” or the “Company”), notified the Company of his intention to retire from the Black Knight Board of Directors (the “Board”) when his term ends at the Company’s Annual Meeting of Shareholders to be held on Wednesday, June 16, 2021 (the “Annual Meeting”). Mr. Foley decided not to stand for re-election at the Annual Meeting in order to reduce the overall number of public company boards on which he serves. The decision was not the result of any disagreements with the Board or the Company on matters related to the Company’s operations, policies or practices.
Following Mr. Foley’s decision, the Board has appointed Anthony M. Jabbour to serve as Chairman of the Board in addition to his role as Chief Executive Officer following Mr. Foley’s retirement at the Annual Meeting. Thomas M. Hagerty shall continue to serve as the Company’s independent Lead Director. In recognition of Mr. Foley’s significant contributions to Black Knight’s success, he will serve as Chairman Emeritus.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
