On January 14, 2021, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of TriState Capital Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) appointed Christopher M. Doody as a director of the Company, effective immediately. Mr. Doody was appointed as a Class II director and his initial term will expire at the Company’s 2022 annual meeting of shareholders. Mr. Doody also was appointed a member of the board of directors of the Company’s bank subsidiary, TriState Capital Bank (the “Bank”).

Mr. Doody was appointed to the Board pursuant to the terms of the Investment Agreement between the Company and T-VIII PubOpps LP, a Delaware limited partnership (“T-VIII PubOpps”) and an affiliate of investment funds managed by Stone Point Capital LLC (“Stone Point”), dated October 10, 2020, as amended by Amendment No. 1, dated December 9, 2020 (the “Investment Agreement”). The Investment Agreement provides that T-VIII PubOpps is entitled to designate one representative to be appointed to the Board and the board of directors of the Bank until such time as T-VIII PubOpps and its affiliates no longer beneficially own 4.5% of the Company’s outstanding shares of Common Stock (defined hereafter) (including shares issuable upon conversion of the Series C perpetual non-cumulative convertible non-voting preferred stock or exercise of the warrants that were issued pursuant to the Investment Agreement). As used, the “Common Stock” means voting common stock, no par value, of the Company, or non-voting common stock, no par value, of the Company, as applicable.

Mr. Doody’s qualifications to serve on the Board include his extensive experience as a director of several bank holding companies and his experience with financial services companies as a Principal of Stone Point, a private equity firm focused primarily on the financial services industry. Prior to the formation of Stone Point in 2005, Mr. Doody served as a Vice President at MMC Capital Corporation, Inc., which he joined in 1998. Mr. Doody served at Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc., where he was an Analyst in the Financial Institutions Investment Banking Group from 1995 to 1998. Mr. Doody holds an M.B.A. from the Columbia University Graduate School of Business and a B.A. in Economics from Middlebury College.

In connection with his appointment, the Board determined that Mr. Doody is an independent director under applicable listing standards of the Nasdaq Global Select Market.

In connection with Mr. Doody’s appointment, Stone Point received a grant of 3,000 restricted shares of the Company’s Common Stock that will vest on the third anniversary of the grant date. Stone Point also received a retainer of $35,000, which was paid in restricted shares of the Company’s Common Stock based on the closing stock price of the Company on January 14, 2021, which restricted shares will vest on the third anniversary of the grant date.
