On April 27, 2022, E2open Parent Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) announced the appointment of Ms. Marje Armstrong to serve as the Company’s Chief Financial Officer effective May 16, 2022 to replace Mr. Jarett Janik who previously announced his retirement. Ms. Armstrong, age 42, is currently serving as VP of Finance at Dropbox, Inc., where she oversees Investor Relations, FP&A, Treasury, Corporate Development, Strategic Finance and Company Planning. Ms. Armstrong joined Dropbox from Afiniti Ltd., where she was Head of Investor Relations, FP&A, Corporate Development and Commercial Finance. Prior to Afiniti, Ms. Armstrong worked at Morgan Stanley for five years and Goldman, Sachs & Co. for 10 years across Investment Banking, Equity Capital Markets, Equity Research, Equity Sales and Equity Trading divisions. Ms. Armstrong earned her B.A. degree in Economics and International Relations from Stanford University.


The selection of Ms. Armstrong as Chief Financial Officer was not pursuant to any arrangement or understanding with respect to any other person. There are no family relationships between Ms. Armstrong and any director or executive officer of the Company, and there are no transactions between Ms. Armstrong and the Company that would be required to be reported under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.


Ms. Armstrong’s compensation package is as follows:


Base salary – $400,000
Executive Annual Incentive Plan – Target bonus set at $400,000
Onboarding Grant – Aggregate grant date fair value equal to $3,300,000, in the form of restricted stock units that vest in equal parts across four years from the date of grant subject to the terms and conditions of the Incentive Plan and the forms of award agreement filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on Form 8-K on February 10, 2021.
Long-Term Incentive Plan Annual Grant – Equity grant with an aggregate grant date fair value equal to $2,000,000, with terms and conditions (e.g., performance measures, vesting schedules, allocation between different forms of equity) determined by the Board.


Ms. Armstrong entered into an executive employment letter agreement, which is the same for each executive, and provides for the provision of base salary, an annual cash incentive opportunity and a long-term equity opportunity. The agreement also provides for participation in the various health, insurance, retirement, paid time off and other benefits provided to other officers of the Company in accordance with the Company’s benefit plans, programs and policies in effect from time to time. Except as provided for in the Executive Severance Plan that each executive is eligible to participate in, the named executive officers are employed on an at-will basis. A copy of the form of executive employment letter agreement was filed as Exhibit 10.1 to our Current Report on Form 8-K filed on March 1, 2021 and is incorporated by reference into this Item 5.02. In connection with her appointment as Chief Financial Officer, Ms. Armstrong also entered into the Company’s standard form of Indemnification Agreement, which was filed as Exhibit 10.4 to the Company’s Form 8-K filed on February 10, 2021.
