On August 23, 2021, the board of directors (the “Board”) of Acropolis Infrastructure Acquisition Corp. (the “Company”) approved an increase in the size of the Board from five directors to six directors, and appointed Ian Deason to the Board, effective August 23, 2021. Mr. Deason will serve as a Class III director until the Company’s third annual meeting of stockholders and until his successor is duly elected and qualified (or his earlier death, resignation or removal).
Mr. Deason has served as a Senior Advisor to the airline, JetBlue, since July 2021. Prior to that, he was JetBlue's Head of Customer Experience, leading 16,000 customer-facing crewmembers across JetBlue's network of over 100 cities spanning North, Central and South America. Mr. Deason's responsibility included all airport, contact center and inflight operations across JetBlue's network. Prior to his role as Head of Customer Experience, he held roles of increasing responsibility across commercial and operations functions during his 15 years at JetBlue, where he scaled JetBlue's business, culture and industry-leading customer service through multiple phases of growth. Before joining JetBlue, Mr. Deason worked in investment banking at Credit Suisse and private equity at Carnegie Wylie in Australia. He also served on Capitol Hill as Senior Advisor to the Chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Small Business. Mr. Deason currently serves on the advisory board for Tomorrow.io, a weather intelligence platform, and holds a master's degree from Harvard Business School and a bachelor's degree in economics from Northwestern University. Mr. Deason's public company executive experience and background in transportation make him a valuable addition to the Company's board of directors.
The Board has affirmatively determined that Mr. Deason meets the applicable standards for an independent director under the listing rules of the New York Stock Exchange.
In connection with his appointment, Mr. Deason is expected to enter into an indemnity agreement and a letter agreement with the Company on the same terms as the indemnity agreements and letter agreement entered into by the directors and officers of the Company at the time of the Company’s initial public offering.
In connection with his appointment to the Board, Mr. Deason will receive a one-time cash compensation of $250,000. In addition, Mr. Deason will be reimbursed for any out-of-pocket expenses incurred in connection with activities on the Company’s behalf such as identifying potential target businesses and performing due diligence on suitable business combinations. The foregoing is only a summary of the arrangements with Mr. Deason and does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the underlying agreement, a copy of which is filed hereto as Exhibit 10.1.
Other than the foregoing, Mr. Deason is not party to any arrangement or understanding with any person pursuant to which he was appointed as director, nor is he party to any transactions required to be disclosed under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K involving the Company.
