On April 4, 2019, Oshkosh Corporation (the "Company") announced that it has appointed John C. Pfeifer as Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of the Company, a newly-created role, effective May 1, 2019.
Previously, Mr. Pfeifer, age 53, had served since November 2018 as Senior Vice President and President - Mercury Marine of Brunswick Corporation, a designer, manufacturer and marketer of recreation products ("Brunswick"), from 2014 to November 2018 as Vice President and President – Mercury Marine of Brunswick and from 2012 to 2014 as Vice President - Global Operations of Mercury Marine of Brunswick. Mercury Marine manufactures and sells recreational marine engines and marine parts and accessories.  From 2008 to 2014, Mr. Pfeifer was President of Brunswick Marine in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa).  He joined Brunswick in 2006 as President of the Brunswick Asia Pacific Group.  Prior to his affiliation with Brunswick, Mr. Pfeifer held various executive positions with ITT Corporation (now known as ITT Inc.).
Mr. Pfeifer is expected to receive compensation, including an annual base salary, participation in the Company's annual incentive compensation plan, and annual awards under the Company's long-term incentive compensation plan, and be eligible to participate in the benefit plans and arrangements made available generally to the Company's executive officers, including entering into a Key Executive Employment and Severance Agreement with a cash severance benefit of two times base salary and bonus, all in a manner consistent with the compensation that the Company provides to its executive officers.  Such compensation and benefit plans and arrangements are described in the Company's Definitive Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 21, 2018.  In addition, Mr. Pfeifer is expected to receive a sign-on cash bonus after commencement of his employment in the amount of $150,000, which is intended to offset the loss of a pro rata portion of the target short-term incentive from Mr. Pfeifer's previous employer.  Mr. Pfeifer is also expected to receive a one-time restricted stock unit grant under the Company's 2017 Incentive Stock and Awards Plan with a value of $3.8 million upon commencement of his employment, which is intended to offset the loss of certain unvested equity awards from Mr. Pfeifer's previous employer and will vest in three equal annual installments.
