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

On October 11, 2018, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of Thor Industries, Inc. (the “Company”) appointed Amelia Huntington as a director of the Company and as a member of the Audit and Compensation and Development Committees. Ms. Huntington, who recently served as President of Philips Lighting Americas, will hold office until the 2018 annual meeting of shareholders and until her successor is elected and qualified.

Ms. Huntington will receive compensation as a non-employee director in accordance with the Company’s non-employee director compensation practices described in the Company’s Preliminary Proxy Statement on Schedule 14A filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on September 28, 2018. This compensation generally consists of an annual cash retainer of $170,000, payable quarterly, reimbursement of relevant expenses and an annual award of restricted stock units, which vest on the first anniversary of the date of grant. The Company expects to enter into an indemnification agreement with Ms. Huntington in substantially the same form as the form of indemnification agreement for executive officers and directors previously filed with the SEC.

The Company is unaware of any arrangements or understandings between Ms. Huntington and any other person pursuant to which she was selected as a director of the Company and she has no direct or indirect material interest in any transaction or proposed transaction required to be disclosed pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.

A copy of the Company’s press release announcing the appointment of Ms. Huntington is attached as Exhibit 99.1 hereto and incorporated herein by reference.
