The Governance and Nominating Committee (the Committee) of Owens Corning (the Company) is responsible for recommending to the Board of Directors of the Company director nominees for election. As a result of a director search performed under the direction of the Committee, the Company has identified John D. Williams as a new director candidate. Mr. Williams is the President and Chief Executive Officer and a director of Domtar Corporation, a manufacturer and marketer of uncoated freesheet paper in North America.
The Board believes that adding Mr. Williams to the Board at the earliest date he is able to serve is in the best interests of the Company. Consequently, on September 15, 2011 the Board took the following actions to become effective November 30, 2011: (a) increased the size of the Board as of November 30, 2011 by one member; and (b) elected Mr. Williams as a director to fill the vacancy created by the increase in the size of the Board, to serve in Class II for a term expiring at the Companys Annual Meeting of Stockholders in 2014.
There is no arrangement or understanding between Mr. Williams and any other persons pursuant to which Mr. Williams was selected as a director. For his service as a non-employee member of the Board, beginning November 30, 2011 Mr. Williams will participate in the non-employee director compensation arrangements in effect at that time. The arrangements currently in effect are described under the heading 2010 Non-Employee Director Compensation in the Companys proxy statement in connection with its 2011 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 16, 2011. There are no related person transactions involving Mr. Williams that are reportable under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.
Mr. Williams will serve on the Audit and Finance Committees.
Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
