On January 27, 2021, the Board of Directors of The Kroger Co. (the “Board”) elected Amanda Sourry (Judith Amanda Sourry Knox) and Kevin Brown to serve as directors. Ms. Sourry has been appointed to serve on the Compensation and Talent Development Committee of the Board and Mr. Brown has been appointed to the Audit Committee of the Board. Neither Ms. Sourry nor Mr. Brown has any arrangement or understanding with any other person pursuant to which either of them was elected as a director. Additionally, neither Ms. Sourry nor Mr. Brown has engaged in any transaction with Kroger during the last fiscal year, and neither proposes to engage in any transactions, that would be reportable under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.


Ms. Sourry and Mr. Brown are eligible to receive Kroger’s standard annual non-employee director compensation as described in our most recent Proxy Statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on May 12, 2020, under the heading “Director Compensation”.


On January 25, 2021, Bobby Shackouls notified the Board of his intention to retire from the Board and its committees effective as of January 27, 2021.
