Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors: Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers
On February 23, 2021, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Haverty Furniture Companies, Inc. (“Havertys”) approved increasing the age from 72 to 75 in its mandatory director retirement policy. The Nominating, Compensation and Governance Committee had waived the mandatory retirement policy for John Glover for the Annual Meeting of Stockholders in 2019 and 2020.
On February 23, 2021, Mr. Glover, 74, informed the Board that he has decided to retire from the Board at Havertys’ 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, which is the end of his current term. Mr. Glover has served on the Board for 25 years, as Audit Committee chair for 18 years, and is currently the Lead Director. The Board elected Tom Hough to succeed Mr. Glover as Lead Director upon his retirement from the Board.
Mr. Glover’s decision not to stand for re-election is not the result of any disagreement with management or the Board related to our operations, policies, or practices.
