BOARD DIVERSITY POLICY
ADOPTED MARCH 24, 2020
The Board of Directors of Distribution Solutions Group, Inc. (the “Company’) believes that a board made up of highly qualified directors from diverse backgrounds and who reflect the changing population demographics of the markets in which the Company operates, the talent available with the required expertise, and the Company’s evolving customer and employee base, promotes better corporate governance. To support this, the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee will, when identifying candidates to recommend for appointment/election to the Board:
- consider only candidates who are highly qualified based on their experience, functional expertise, and personal skills and qualities;
- consider diversity criteria including gender, age, ethnicity and geographic background; and
- in addition to its own search, engage qualified independent external advisors to conduct a search for candidates that meet the Board’s skills and diversity criteria to help achieve its diversity aspirations.
