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

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 Suzanne P. Nimocks as a new director candidate. Ms. Nimocks recently retired as a Director (senior partner) with McKinsey & Company, a global management consulting firm.

On June 14, 2012 the Board took the following actions to become effective September 12, 2012: (a) increased the size of the Board as of September 12, 2012 by one member; and (b) elected Ms. Nimocks as a director to fill the vacancy created by the increase in the size of the Board, to serve in Class III for a term expiring at the Company’s Annual Meeting of Stockholders in 2015.

There is no arrangement or understanding between Ms. Nimocks and any other persons pursuant to which Ms. Nimocks was selected as a director. For her service as a non-employee member of the Board, beginning September 12, 2012 Ms. Nimocks will participate in the non-employee director compensation arrangements in effect at that time. The arrangements currently in effect are described under the heading “2011 Non-Employee Director Compensation” in the Company’s proxy statement in connection with its 2012 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 14, 2011. There are no related person transactions involving Ms. Nimocks that are reportable under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.

Ms. Nimocks will serve on the Compensation Committee and Governance and Nominating Committee.


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.
