On December 3, 2020, W.W. Grainger, Inc. (the "Company") announced that Thomas B. Okray has decided to step down as Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of the Company effective December 31, 2020 to pursue another opportunity at a publicly traded company.

In addition, on December 3, 2020, the Company announced that Robert F. O'Keef, Jr., the Company's Vice President and Treasurer, will assume additional responsibilities as interim Chief Financial Officer, effective January 1, 2021, until such time as a permanent replacement has been identified.
