Item 5.02
Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On May 13, 2019, the Board of Directors (the Board) of Markel Corporation (the Company), upon the recommendation of the Compensation Committee of the Board, approved an amendment to the Markel Corporation 2016 Employee Stock Purchase and Bonus Plan (the 2016 Plan). A description of the 2016 Plan is set forth in the Company's Proxy Statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 29, 2019. Prior to the amendment, the 2016 Plan included a loan program designed to facilitate the purchase of shares of the Company’s common stock by employees who were not executive officers or directors. As a result of the amendment, however, as of May 16, 2019, the loan program was discontinued and employees may no longer obtain loans from the Company for the purpose of purchasing shares of the Company's common stock under the 2016 Plan. Loans outstanding as of May 16, 2019 continue to be governed by the terms of the 2016 Plan. Except as described above, all other material terms of the 2016 Plan remain in effect.
