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

On March 15, 2021, Robert J. Hochberg tendered his resignation as a director of the board of directors (the “Board”) of Rodin Income Trust Inc. (the “Company”) and as chairman of the audit committee of the Board, effective immediately. Mr. Hochberg’s resignation is not based on any disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to the Company’s operations, policies or practice.

In addition, on March 15, 2021, the Board appointed Arthur F. Backal to serve as the independent director of the Board and chairman of the audit committee of the Board to fill the vacancy created by Hochberg’s resignation, effective immediately.

 

Mr. Backal founded and has served as the President and Chief Executive Officer of Backal Hospitality Group, LLC, a premier New York-based hospitality and event services company, since December 2007. Mr. Backal also founded and has served as the President of State of the Art Enterprises, Inc., a premier New York-based full-service event planning company, since November 2002. Prior to founding Backal Hospitality Group and State of the Art Enterprises, Mr. Backal focused on the New York hospitality industry, holding various positions with a number of hotels in New York City, including the Plaza, the Pierre, the Helmsley Palace and the St. Regis.  Mr. Backal  has also served as a director of Cantor Fitzgerald Income Trust, Inc., a public non-traded REIT sponsored by the Company’s sponsor, since February 2017.   Mr. Backal holds a Bachelor of Arts in Hospitality Business from Michigan State University.

The Company believes that Mr. Backal’s extensive business management experience supports his appointment to the Company’s board of directors.
