Item 5.02    Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On March 15, 2024, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Lennox International Inc. (the “Company”) elected Sivasankaran Somasundaram to the Board to serve as a Class III director. Mr. Somasundaram’s term will expire at the Company’s 2025 annual meeting of stockholders.

Mr. Somasundaram was also named to the Board Governance Committee and the Compensation and Human Resources Committee.

Mr. Somasundaram, age 58, is the President and Chief Executive Officer and a Director of ChampionX Corporation, a publicly traded global leader in chemistry solutions, artificial lift systems, and highly engineered equipment and technologies. Prior to ChampionX’s spin-off from Dover Corporation ("Dover"), Mr. Somasundaram was president and CEO of Dover Energy. He held a number of other senior executive leadership roles at Dover, including executive vice president of Dover Energy, executive vice president of Dover Fluid Management, president of Dover’s Fluid Solutions Platform, president of Dover’s Gas Equipment Group, and president of Dover’s RPA Process Technologies business. Before joining Dover in 2004, Mr. Somasundaram served in various global leadership roles at GL&V Inc. and Baker Hughes Inc.

As compensation for his service on the Board, Mr. Somasundaram will receive an annual retainer of $105,000. In addition, Mr. Somasundaram will receive annual equity compensation in the form of Company common stock of approximately $150,000. Mr. Somasundaram’s compensation is consistent with the Company’s current Board compensation program applicable to the Company’s other non-employee directors.

The Board of Directors has affirmatively determined that Mr. Somasundaram is independent and has no material direct or indirect interest in a related party transaction that requires disclosure.

Mr. Somasundaram and the Company entered into the Company's standard form indemnification agreement (the “Indemnification Agreement”), which sets forth the terms of the Company’s contractual obligation to provide indemnification, advance expenses, and provide insurance (attached hereto as Exhibit 10.1).

The foregoing description of the form of indemnification agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such agreement which is filed as Exhibit 10.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K and is incorporated herein by reference.
