On May 25, 2021, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of TriNet Group, Inc. (the “Company”) approved an increase in the size of the Board and appointed Myrna Soto as a director to fill the vacancy created by the increase, with effect on May 27, 2021. Ms. Soto will serve as a Class II Director, and as such will serve until the Company’s 2022 Annual General Meeting of Stockholders and until her successor is duly elected and qualified, or until her services cease sooner in the event of her earlier death, resignation, or removal. Effective May 27, 2021, the Board also appointed Ms. Soto to the Audit Committee of the Board.

There is no arrangement or understanding between Ms. Soto, on the one hand, and any other persons, on the other hand, pursuant to which Ms. Soto was selected as a director, and there are no related party transactions involving Ms. Soto that are reportable under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K. The Board determined that Ms. Soto is independent within the meaning of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, the rules and regulations promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) thereunder, and the listing standards of the New York Stock Exchange.

Ms. Soto will receive compensation for her service on the Board in accordance with the Board’s Amended and Restated Non-Employee Director Compensation Policy (the “Non-Employee Director Compensation Policy”), as described in the definitive proxy statement for the Company’s 2021 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, filed with the SEC on April 14, 2021.
