Ms. Kamienski, age 38, joined the Company in 2016 as Director of Technical Accounting, Financial Reporting and Controls. Ms. Kamienski also served as Manager of Accounting – Financial Reporting at Freeport-McMoRan Inc. from 2012 to 2016, Senior Accounting Analyst at Freeport-McMoRan Inc. from 2007 to 2012 and as Audit Associate at KPMG, LLP from 2006 to 2007.

In connection with her appointment as principal accounting officer, Ms. Kamienski will be entitled to participate in the Company’s employee benefit plans from time to time in effect and available to executive officers.

In the event Ms. Kamienski’s employment is terminated within three years of a “change of control,” she would be entitled to three years compensation, including bonus, vesting of equity compensation, retirement benefits equal to the benefits she would have received had she completed three additional years of employment with the Company and continuation of all life, accident, health, savings and other fringe benefits, all in accordance with and subject to the terms of the Company’s executive severance agreement.
