Promotion of Gregory A. Hoffman to Chief Financial Officer

On March 6, 2023, Construction Partners, Inc. (the “Company”) announced that, effective following the close of business on March 31, 2023, the Company’s Senior Vice President of Finance, Gregory A. Hoffman, will transition to the role of Chief Financial Officer of the Company, including the role of principal financial officer. The Company’s current Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer, R. Alan Palmer, will remain with the Company following the transition in an advisory and mentoring role.
Hoffman, age 58, has served as the Company’s Senior Vice President of Finance since April 2021. Prior to that, Hoffman served as Chief Financial Officer of Wiregrass Construction Company, Inc., the Company’s Alabama subsidiary, from 2009 to 2021. Before joining the Company, Hoffman served in various roles at Corporate Express, Inc., a Staples company, including as Division Controller and Vice President, Operations, and also as Division Controller for APAC-Georgia, Inc., a heavy civil infrastructure company. Prior to that, Hoffman was a Manager at Ernst & Young LLP, where he managed audit engagement teams serving a variety of industries, including construction. Mr. Hoffman holds a Bachelor of Science in Accounting from the University of Alabama.

Transactions with Related Parties

The Company has entered into indemnification agreements with each of its current directors and executive officers, including Hoffman. The indemnification agreements generally provide, among other things, that the Company will indemnify and hold harmless each indemnitee to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law from and against all expenses, losses, damages, judgments, fines and other specified costs that may result or arise in connection with such indemnitee serving in his or her capacity as a director or executive officer of the Company or serving at the Company’s direction as a director, officer, employee or agent of another entity. These agreements further provide that, upon an indemnitee’s request and subject to certain conditions, the Company will advance expenses to the indemnitee. Pursuant to the indemnification agreements, an indemnitee is presumed to be entitled to indemnification, and the Company has the burden of proving otherwise. The indemnification agreements also provide that, to the extent that the Company maintains an insurance policy providing liability insurance for directors, officers, employees, agents or fiduciaries of the Company, indemnitees shall be covered by such policy to the maximum extent of the available coverage. The foregoing is only a brief description of the indemnification agreements, does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the Company’s form of indemnification agreement, which previously has been filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission and is attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.

Other than as described herein, there are no arrangements or understandings between Hoffman and any other persons pursuant to which he was selected to serve as the Company’s Chief Financial Officer. In addition, there are no transactions between the Company and Hoffman or his immediate family members requiring disclosure under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, other than as described herein.
