As previously disclosed on a Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Marathon Petroleum Corporation (the “Corporation”) with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 18, 2020, in connection with his retirement, Gary R. Heminger did not stand for re-election as a member of the Corporation’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) at the Corporation’s 2020 Annual Meeting of Shareholders (the “2020 Annual Meeting”), which was held on April 29, 2020. Consequently, Mr. Heminger ceased to serve as the Executive Chairman and a member of the Board as of the conclusion of the 2020 Annual Meeting.

On April 29, 2020, the Board, following the conclusion of the 2020 Annual Meeting, (x) appointed Michael J. Hennigan, the Corporation’s President and Chief Executive Officer, as a Class I director with a term expiring at the Corporation’s 2021 Annual Meeting of Shareholders and (y) appointed John P. Surma, a current Class III director of the Board, as the non-Executive Chairman of the Board. Mr. Hennigan was also appointed to the Corporation's Sustainability Committee. Consistent with the Corporation's policies, Mr. Hennigan, as an employee of the Corporation, will not be entitled to any compensation for his service as a director on the Board.

A copy of the press release announcing the appointments of Mr. Hennigan and Mr. Surma is filed with this Current Report on Form 8-K as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated herein by reference.
