ITEM 5.02 DEPARTURE OF DIRECTORS OR CERTAIN OFFICERS; ELECTION OF DIRECTORS; APPOINTMENT OF CERTAIN OFFICERS; COMPENSATORY ARRANGEMENTS OF CERTAIN OFFICERS.
On September 24, 2020, the Board appointed Kenny K. Cheung, the Executive Vice President of Finance, Chief Operational Finance and Restructuring Officer of Hertz Global Holdings, Inc. (“HGH”) and The Hertz Corporation (“Hertz”) (collectively, the “Company”) to serve as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of the Company, effective immediately. His appointment follows the resignation of R. Eric Esper from his position as Executive Vice President of Finance, Chief Financial Officer of the Company on September 22, 2020. To assist in the transition of his responsibilities, Mr. Esper will remain as Chief Accounting Officer of the Company until November 1, 2020 and will forfeit his retention bonus under the Company’s Key Employee Retention Program.

Mr. Cheung, 38, has served as the Company’s Executive Vice President of Finance, Chief Operational Finance and Restructuring Officer since August 14, 2020. Prior to that he served as Senior Vice President of Global Financial Planning & Analysis and Chief Financial Officer, North America since he joined the Company in December 2018. He previously held a variety of financial leadership roles with Nielsen Holdings, PLC (“Nielsen”), an information, data and measurement firm, most recently as Global Chief Audit Executive, and prior to that as a regional Chief Operating Officer after holding the position of regional Chief Financial Officer. Prior to Nielsen, Mr. Cheung worked for General Electric in various roles across Supply Chain, Operations, and Financial Planning & Analysis.

The selection of Mr. Cheung to serve as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer was not pursuant to any arrangement or understanding with respect to any other person. There are no family relationships between Mr. Cheung and any director or executive officer of the Company, and there are no transactions between Mr. Cheung and the Company that would be required to be reported under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.

In connection with Mr. Cheung’s promotion, his annual base salary was increased to $600,000 and his annual bonus target under the Company’s annual bonus plan was set at 80% of his annual base salary, in each case, effective immediately.
