Mr. Coulombe, age 37, joined the company in 2019 as Vice President of Finance and was promoted to Senior Vice President in early 2021 based on his success in building and leading the Company’s strategic planning and analysis function. From 2016 to 2019, he held various finance leadership roles at Box, Inc., a cloud content management company, and from 2012 to 2016 he held financial planning and analysis, strategy, and corporate development leadership positions at Autodesk, Inc., a design software and services company. Prior to that, he spent five years in technology and investment banking, focusing on the software and SaaS industries. He began his career in public accounting at KPMG. Mr. Coulombe is a CFA charterholder, and holds an MBA from the University of California, Berkeley and a B.S. in Finance and Accounting from the University of Maryland, College Park.
In connection with Mr. Coulombe’s appointment, the Company and Mr. Coulombe entered into an offer letter agreement (the “Offer Letter”) which provides that as Chief Financial Officer, he will receive an annual base salary of $375,000 and be eligible for an annual target incentive bonus under the Company’s Executive Bonus Compensation Plan of 65% of his base salary, which will be pro-rated for the current fiscal year. The Offer Letter also provides for a grant of 55,000 restricted stock units (“RSUs”) which will vest ratably on a quarterly basis over a three-year period, beginning in November 2021, and a grant of 110,000 non-qualified stock options (“NSOs”) which will vest ratably on a quarterly basis over a three-year period, beginning in November 2021. Vesting of the RSUs and NSOs are subject to Mr. Coulombe continued service with the Company through each applicable vesting date, and are subject to the terms and conditions of the Company’s 2018 Equity Incentive Plan, as amended, and the related form of equity agreement.
Additionally, Mr. Coulombe has entered into the Company’s standard from Change of Control and Severance Agreement (“Severance Agreement”), which provides that upon a termination of his employment without cause or resignation for good reason (as defined in the Severance Agreement) but not between three months prior to, or twelve months following, a change in control, then Mr. Coulombe would receive a cash severance payment equal to six months of his base salary plus reimbursement for COBRA premiums up to six months. Additionally, if Mr. Coulombe is terminated between the date that this three months prior to, or twelve months following, a change in control, then Mr. Coulombe would receive a cash severance payment equal to twelve months of his base salary plus reimbursement for COBRA premiums for up to six months, and will be entitled to full acceleration of vesting of all equity awards.
In connection with his appointment, Mr. Coulombe will also enter into the Company’s standard form of indemnification agreement, a copy of which has previously been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 26, 2019 as Exhibit 10.1 to the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K.
There are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Coulombe, on the one hand, and the Company or any other persons, on the other hand, pursuant to which Mr. Coulombe was selected as Chief Financial Officer. There are no related party transactions between the Company and Mr. Coulombe (or any of his immediate family members) requiring disclosure under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.
