On January 12, 2022, The Howard Hughes Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the "Company") announced the appointment of Carlos A. Olea to serve as the Company's Chief Financial Officer, effective January 12, 2022.

Mr. Olea, age 43, has been with the Company since 2017, including as Chief Accounting Officer since 2019. In this role, Mr. Olea was responsible for accounting operations and external financial reporting across the portfolio. Mr. Olea also served as the Company's EVP, Accounting and VP, Accounting Policy & Reporting in 2018 and 2017, respectively. Prior to joining the Company, Mr. Olea served as the Chief Accounting Officer for Carr Properties, a Washington, D.C. based owner-operator and developer, from 2014 to 2017. Previously, Mr. Olea was a Senior Manager with the Advisory Services practice of Ernst and Young and a Director of Technical Accounting and Financial Reporting with AvalonBay Communities in Arlington, Virginia. Mr. Olea earned a graduate degree in real estate finance from Georgetown University, and a B.S. in Accounting and Finance from ITESM, in Mexico.

In connection with his appointment, the Company entered into an employment agreement with Mr. Olea, effective January 12, 2022. The initial term of the employment agreement expires on December 31, 2026, unless earlier terminated. Thereafter, the term shall renew automatically for additional periods of one year, unless either party provides notice of non-renewal at least 60 days period to the automatic renewal. Under the agreement, Mr. Olea's annual base salary will be $500,000, and he will be eligible to earn an annual cash bonus in the targeted amount of $750,000 ("Target Annual Bonus") based upon the achievement of performance goals that will be established by the Compensation Committee of the Company's Board of Directors (the "Compensation Committee"). If the Compensation Committee establishes a minimum overall performance goal that Mr. Olea is required to achieve to receive an annual bonus and the minimum goal is achieved, then the annual bonus for such calendar year shall be equal to at least 80% of the Target Annual Bonus, but no more than 120% of the Target Annual Bonus. In addition, commencing in 2022, Mr. Olea will be eligible to receive an annual long-term equity award of up to $950,000 worth of restricted stock (50% time-based vesting and 50% performance-based vesting) under The Howard Hughes Corporation 2020 Equity Incentive Plan.

Pursuant to the employment agreement, Mr. Olea has agreed to restrictive covenants, including non-solicitation and non-competition covenants, applicable during the term of his employment with the Company and for various periods following his termination of employment for any reason. The non-solicitation and non-competition covenants expire 12 months after Mr. Olea's termination. In the event Mr. Olea's employment terminates before the expiration of the employment agreement's term, he may be entitled to severance payments depending on the circumstances, and the severance may be enhanced if payable in connection with a change in control of the Company.

The Company has also entered into an indemnification agreement with Mr. Olea, effective January 12, 2022. The indemnification agreement requires the Company to indemnify Mr. Olea to the fullest extent permitted by Delaware law, including indemnification of expenses such as attorneys' fees, judgments, fines and settlement amounts reasonably incurred by him in any action or proceeding arising out of his service as an executive officer of the Company. The indemnification agreement is in the form previously approved by the Company's Board of Directors for indemnification of directors and certain officers of the Company.

The foregoing summaries of the employment agreement and the indemnification agreement with Mr. Olea are qualified in their entirety by reference to the full text of the employment agreement and the indemnification agreement, which are filed as Exhibits 10.1 and 10.2 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and incorporated by reference into this Item 5.02.
