Prior to Mirion, Mr. Vanevenhoven worked for Fleet Farm, a KKR-owned portfolio company, from October 2016 until June 2019, where he navigated the transition from a family-held business to a portfolio company. Mr. Vanevenhoven began his career in public accounting where he became a Senior Manager at KPMG, serving private and public companies in the manufacturing sector. He is also a licensed CPA.

On January 20, 2023, the Company entered into an employment offer letter agreement (the “Offer Letter”) with Mr. Vanevenhoven. Pursuant to the Offer Letter, Mr. Vanevenhoven will be eligible to participate in employee benefit plans and programs provided by the Company and entitled to the following compensation: (i) an annualized base salary of $260,000 per year; (ii) a one-time signing bonus of $30,000; (iii) eligibility to participate in a short term incentive program with an annual bonus with a target value of 25% of his annualized base salary; and (iv) eligibility to participate in the Company’s 2021 Omnibus Incentive Plan or such other equity incentive plan of the Company as may be in effect from time to time, under which he will receive a 2023 equity award comprised of restricted stock units with a grant date value of $50,000, subject to review and approval by the Company’s Compensation Committee at its next regularly scheduled meeting. If Mr. Vanevenhoven resigns for any reason within 12 months following the Effective Date, he shall repay the Company his sign-on bonus on a pro-rated basis.
