Item 5.02.   Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers
On December 5, 2008, Citizens Business Bank (the “Bank”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of CVB Financial Corp. (the “Company”), entered into a consulting agreement with Jay W. Coleman, Executive Vice President—Sales and Service Division of the Bank. Mr. Coleman, who will be retiring from his position as Executive Vice President on March 31, 2009 (the “Consulting Agreement”), has agreed to provide certain consulting services to the Bank for a two-year term beginning on April 1, 2009, and ending on March 31, 2011. Mr. Coleman will be succeeded by Mr. Todd Hollander, who is currently Executive Vice President of the Sales Division of the Bank. Remarking on the retirement, Mr. Christopher D. Myers, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Bank, said, “We are extremely grateful for the contributions Jay has made to this organization over the last twenty years, and we are glad that he will be continuing to provide service to the Bank as a consultant after his retirement. We are also excited that Todd Hollander, who joined us in May 2008, will be succeeding Jay during this challenging time for banks.”
Under the Consulting Agreement, Mr. Coleman is eligible to receive gross consulting fees of $8,000 per month. In addition, the Bank will (i) reimburse Mr. Coleman for reasonable and necessary travel and other expenses incurred in connection with performing the consulting services, (ii) provide and pay for a continuation of the health benefits Mr. Coleman received as an employee of the Bank, (iii) reimburse Mr. Coleman for monthly country club dues, but not for capital assessments, and (iv) permit Mr. Coleman to purchase the Company automobile used during the term of his employment, at the wholesale blue book price. Mr. Coleman may be granted stock options, at the discretion of the Company. His existing stock options will continue to vest throughout the term of the Consulting Agreement as if Mr. Coleman were still employed by the Bank.
The Consulting Agreement also provides that, during its term, Mr. Coleman will not solicit customers or employees of the Bank, nor will he become employed by or provide any services to a competing bank, directly or indirectly. The prohibition on customer solicitation shall remain in place for one (1) year following the termination of the Consulting Agreement.
This discussion is qualified in its entirety by the terms of Mr. Coleman’s Consulting Agreement, a copy of which is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and incorporated herein by reference.
