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


On July 21, 2022, Vroom, Inc. (the “Company”) promoted Agnieszka Zakowicz to Senior Vice President and Principal Accounting Officer, effective as of July 25, 2022 (the “Commencement Date”).


Ms. Zakowicz, 50, most recently served as the Company’s Vice President of SEC Reporting and Accounting Policy since August 2020, where she was responsible for financial reporting, technical accounting and SOX compliance. Previously, Ms. Zakowicz served as Senior Director of Accounting Policy since joining the Company in January 2019. Prior to joining the Company, Ms. Zakowicz worked as a Director in the Capital Markets and Accounting Advisory Practice at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP for 18 years, where she assisted various clients with the financial reporting aspects of capital market transactions and technical accounting.


In connection with Ms. Zakowicz’s promotion to Senior Vice President and Principal Accounting Officer, the Company and Ms. Zakowicz entered into a letter agreement setting forth the terms and conditions of her promotion. In consideration for her service as Senior Vice President and Principal Accounting Officer, as of the Commencement Date Ms. Zakowicz will receive an annual base salary of $300,000 and will continue to be eligible to receive an annual cash incentive. As of the Commencement Date, the target opportunity of Ms. Zakowicz’s annual cash incentive is equal to 35% of her annual base salary, with any actual cash incentive paid for the 2022 calendar year pro-rated based on the time spent in each position she held at the Company during 2022. In connection with her promotion, Ms. Zakowicz received a restricted stock unit grant with respect to 140,000 shares of common stock of the Company (the "RSU Grant"), which will vest on the third anniversary of the Commencement Date, subject to her continued employment through that date; provided, that there will be an opportunity for the RSU Grant to vest on an accelerated basis in 1/3 increments if the Company achieves and sustains a closing price at or above $7.50 per share for twenty consecutive trading days during the three-year vesting period; a closing price at or above $15.00 per share for twenty consecutive trading days in the second or third years of the vesting period; and a closing price at or above $21.00 per share for twenty consecutive trading days during the third year of the vesting period. Ms. Zakowicz will also receive a one-time cash payment equal to $7,250, less applicable taxes, within 30 days of the Commencement Date.


Ms. Zakowicz will also be eligible to continue participating in the Company’s broad-based employee benefits programs.


In addition, Ms. Zakowicz will be covered by the Company's standard indemnification agreement and will remain subject to the Company’s standard Proprietary Information and Inventions Assignment Agreement, which subjects her to certain restrictive covenants, including confidentiality and one-year post-employment restrictions on competition and solicitation of employees, vendors and customers of the Company.
