On behalf of the GXO Logistics leadership team, I’m happy to offer you the following updated offer for the position of Chief Communications Officer, effective September 1, 2021. I know I speak for the rest of our team when I say how pleased we are to make you this offer.

Annual Incentive: The incentive plan structure is based on a target percentage of your eligible earnings. The target incentive for you is 75% of your eligible earnings if you achieve all your performance goals and targets (determined by your supervisor) and the Company achieves its business goals. Your annual incentive will be based on eligible earnings from your start date. If your start date is after September 30th, you are not eligible for that year’s annual incentive. Instead eligibility begins January 1st of the following year.  
Long-term Incentive: You will be eligible for a long-term incentive award, the amount and form of which will be determined after the end of each performance year (it being understood that the first such performance year shall be the year in which you are hired), in conjunction with determination of your final annual incentive achievement. Any such award will be contingent upon the approval of the Compensation Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors or its delegate.  
Annual and long-term incentive awards will be reflective of your individual performance and contributions, the Company and/or business unit performance, as applicable, and the scope and expectations of your position/role in the Company and/or your business unit. As an at-will employee, annual and long-term incentives are subject to change at the sole discretion of the Company.
