On November 30, 2021, the board of directors (the “Board”) of ChargePoint Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”) appointed Elaine L. Chao as a Class III director, effective immediately. Ms. Chao will serve until the Company’s 2023 annual meeting of stockholders and until her successor is elected and qualified, or sooner in the event of her death, resignation or removal. The Board has determined that Ms. Chao meets the requirements for independence under the applicable listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange and the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

Elaine L. Chao served as the 18th U.S. Secretary of Transportation from January 2017 to January 2021 and served as the 24th U.S. Secretary of Labor from January 2001 to January 2009.

Ms. Chao holds a bachelor’s degree in economics from Mount Holyoke College and a Master in Business Administration from the Harvard Business School. The Board believes that Ms. Chao is qualified to serve as a director of the Company due to her extensive public policy experience and her prior public company services.

Ms. Chao will be entitled to receive compensation in accordance with the ChargePoint Holdings, Inc. Compensation Program for Non-Employee Directors, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 1, 2021 as Exhibit 10.11 to the Company’s Current Report on Form 8-K. Ms. Chao will also enter into the Company’s standard form of indemnification agreement.

There are no arrangements or understandings between Ms. Chao and any other persons pursuant to which she was elected as a member of the Board. Ms. Chao is not a party to any current or proposed transaction with the Company for which disclosure is required under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.
