OFFICERS.

 

(d)Election of Director

 

Host Hotels & Resorts, Inc. (the “Company”), the general partner of Host Hotels & Resorts, L.P., announced that, on June 18, 2021, at the recommendation of the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company, the Board elected Mr. Herman E. Bulls to the Board of Directors.  Mr. Bulls will serve until the next annual meeting of stockholders of the Company and until his successor is duly elected and qualified. Mr. Bulls was also appointed to the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of the Board on the same date.  

 

Mr. Bulls currently serves as vice chairman, Americas, at Jones Lang LaSalle (“JLL”), as well as an international director.  He was the founder of JLL's Public Institutions Business Unit.  During over 31 years at JLL, Mr. Bulls has worked in the areas of development, investment management, asset management, facilities operations and business development/retention.  Mr. Bulls previously co-founded and served as president and CEO of Bulls Capital Partners, a Fannie Mae multi-family financing company, and founded Bulls Advisory Group, LLC, a management and real estate advisory firm.  Prior to joining JLL, Mr. Bulls completed almost 12 years of active duty service with the United States Army, retiring as a Colonel in the U.S. Army Reserves in 2008.  Mr. Bulls is a member of the Executive Leadership Council, Leadership Washington and the Real Estate Executive Council.  Mr. Bulls is also a founding member and served as the inaugural president of the African American Real Estate Professionals of Washington, D.C. and serves as vice chairman of the University Development Innovation Council of the Urban Land Institute. He currently serves as a director of American Campus Communities, Comfort Systems, USA, and USAA and is a member of the Real Estate Advisory Committee for New York State Teachers' Retirement System. Mr. Bulls previously served on the boards of Tyco International, Exelis, Inc., and Computer Sciences Corporation.  

 

The Board of Directors determined that Mr. Bulls is independent under (a) the rules of The Nasdaq Stock Market, and (b) the “Director Independence Guidelines” of the Corporate Governance Guidelines of the Company. In connection with his appointment, the Company will enter into an indemnification agreement with Mr. Bulls substantially in the form of the indemnification agreement the Company has entered into with all other directors and previously filed by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The form of the indemnification agreement generally provides for the indemnification of and advancement of expenses to a director to the maximum extent permitted by Maryland law for claims, suits or proceedings arising out of their service to the Company.

 

Mr. Bulls will receive the same fees for his service as our other independent directors, which fees were disclosed in the

Company’s proxy statement for its 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders. Annual cash compensation will be pro-rated from the date of Mr. Bulls election to the Board. In addition, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee recommended, and the

Board approved, an award of common stock equaling the prorated annual stock award amount. The number of shares of common stock was calculated by dividing the pro-rated portion of the annual stock award amount of $140,000 by the fair market value of the Company’s common stock on the date of Board approval, June 18, 2021.
