On March 1, 2024, the board of directors (the “Board”) of Rekor Systems, Inc. (the “Company”) approved an increase to the size of the Board by one seat, to nine members, and appointed Anne Townsend to fill the resulting vacancy. Ms. Townsend will serve for a term expiring at the Company’s 2024 annual meeting of stockholders, at which meeting she will be nominated by the Board to stand for election by the Company’s stockholders to serve for a term to expire at the next annual meeting of the stockholders. 


Ms. Townsend, age 46, is Senior Principal Cybersecurity Engineer at the MITRE Corporation. In her role, she is responsible for providing leadership to the organization in the area of cybersecurity, concentrating on data security. Ms. Townsend joined MITRE in 2004. During the course of her employment, she has focused on cybersecurity challenges such as network perimeter defense, data security, and Internet of Things (IoT). Ms. Townsend holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration with a concentration in computer and information sciences from the University of Florida and a master’s degree in computer science with a concentration in information security from Boston University.


The Board has determined that Ms. Townsend is an independent director within the meaning of NASDAQ Rule 5605, and that her skills and experiences in the area of cybersecurity make her a qualified member of the Board.


Ms. Townsend’s compensation for service as a director will be consistent with that of the Company’s other nonemployee directors. Effective with her appointment, Ms. Townsend will be granted 50,000 restricted stock units subject to one-year vesting.
