AQUA METALS, INC. : Change in Directors or Principal Officers (form 8-K)

08/13/2021 | 04:05pm EDT

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

On August 10, 2020, we appointed Benjamin Taecker to serve as Chief Engineering and Operating Officer of Aqua Metals, Inc.

Mr. Taecker has 20 years of experience in manufacturing and operations leadership and has been with Aqua Metals since January of 2017. Prior to relocating his family to the Tahoe-Reno area to join Aqua Metals, he spent six years in progressive leadership roles at the Johnson Controls Inc. ("JCI Power Systems Division" now Clarios) Lead Acid Battery Recycling Center in Florence, South Carolina and was a leader in the early planning, construction, commissioning, and scaling of that facility. Mr. Taecker also led the engineering team to improve battery recycling processes in the new smelter which resulted in a 70% reduction in smelting emissions. Mr. Taecker was instrumental in delivering a compliant plant for Clarios. Mr. Taecker has experience in startups, environmental regulation compliance, process development and operational excellence. Mr. Taecker has years of design management experience including complex design contracts for the U.S. military. Mr. Taecker is highly motivated about being a key part of the new processes used by Aqua Metals to eliminate many of the safety and environmental hazards found at traditional smelters while making the purest lead in the world. Mr. Taecker has a Mechanical Engineering degree from South Dakota State University.


               In connection with Mr. Taecker's appointment, we entered into an

executive employment agreement with Mr. Taecker. Pursuant to the employment agreement, we have agreed to compensate Mr. Taecker at the annual rate of $250,000. Mr. Taecker will be eligible to receive short-term and long-term incentive bonuses of up to 50% and 100% of his base salary, respectively, based on performance criteria approved by the compensation committee of our board of directors. The employment agreement entitles Mr. Taecker to reasonable and customary health insurance and other benefits, at our expense, and severance equal to 150% of his then annual salary and target annual bonus amount in the event of his termination without cause or his resignation for good reason following a change-in-control of Aqua Metals.
