Executive Officer Changes
On May 18, 2023, Zillow Group, Inc. (“Zillow” or the “Company”) announced that the board of directors (the “Board”) of Zillow appointed Jeremy Hofmann, currently Zillow’s Senior Vice President, Corporate Development and Strategy, as Zillow’s Chief Financial Officer, effective May 18, 2023. Mr. Hofmann will succeed Allen Parker, who will step back from his role as Chief Financial Officer as of May 18, 2023, but will continue in an advisory role, as further described below.
Mr. Hofmann, 37, has served in various leadership roles at Zillow since joining the Company in 2017. Mr. Hofmann has served as Senior Vice President, Corporate Development and Strategy since February 2022. He served as Vice President, Corporate Development and Strategy from November 2018 to February 2022, and as Senior Director, Corporate Development from October 2017 to November 2018. Prior to joining the Company, Mr. Hofmann was Vice President, Investment Banking Division, Technology Capital Markets and Private Placements at Goldman Sachs. Mr. Hofmann earned his B.S.B.A. in finance from Georgetown University, where he graduated Cum Laude.
Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers
In connection with his appointment as Chief Financial Officer, the Board increased Mr. Hofmann’s base salary to $600,000 and awarded him 125,000 shares of Class C Capital Stock, initially denominated as restricted stock units under the Zillow Group, Inc. 2020 Incentive Plan (the “Equity Award”), which Mr. Hofmann may elect to instead receive in the form of stock options, or a combination of stock options and RSUs, pursuant to the Company’s equity choice program. The Equity Award will vest over four (4) years in sixteen (16) substantially equal quarterly installments. In addition, Mr. Hofmann and the Company entered into an indemnification agreement providing for Mr. Hofmann’s contractual rights to indemnification, expense advancement, and reimbursement to the fullest extent permitted by the Washington Business Corporation Law, substantially in the form filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated herein by reference.
In connection with his departure and subject to Mr. Parker’s execution and non-revocation of a separation and release of claims agreement (the “Agreement”) he will receive certain payments and benefits. From May 18, 2023 through February 15, 2024 (the “Transition Period”), Mr. Parker will continue to be employed as an advisor unless employment sooner terminates under the Agreement (the last date of employment, the “Separation Date”). During the Transition Period, Mr. Parker will be paid his current base salary, remain eligible to participate in the Company’s health and welfare benefit plans, and his Company stock options and restricted stock units (together, the “Parker Equity Awards”) will continue to vest under their existing terms and conditions until the Separation Date.
Upon the Separation Date and subject to his ongoing compliance with the terms of the Agreement, the Agreement provides Mr. Parker with the following payments and benefits: (1) any unvested portions of the Parker Equity Awards that were scheduled to vest during the twelve (12) month period following the Separation Date will automatically become vested and, if applicable, exercisable, and the vested portions of outstanding stock options (each, a “Vested Option”) will remain exercisable for the earlier of (i) eighteen (18) months from the Separation Date, or (ii) the latest day upon which a Vested Option would have expired by its original terms; (2) payment for six (6) months after the Separation Date of continued medical benefits under the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1985, as amended; and (3) continued payment of Mr. Parker’s base salary for six (6) months after the Separation Date.
The foregoing description of the Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Agreement, a copy of which will be filed as an exhibit to the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarterly period ended June 30, 2023.
