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

On October 13, 2016, the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of DCT Industrial Trust Inc. (the “Company”) appointed Tobias Hartmann as a Director of the Company, effective as of October 31, 2016, to serve until the Company’s 2017 annual meeting of stockholders. Mr. Hartmann will serve on the Board’s Compensation Committee and Investment Committee.

On October 31, 2016, pursuant to the Board’s current policy regarding director compensation, the Company will grant Mr. Hartmann shares of phantom stock of the Company with a value equal to $70,000. The shares of phantom stock will vest in full on the first anniversary of the grant date, subject to continued service as a director.

Additionally, in connection with Mr. Hartmann’s appointment to the Board, the Company and Mr. Hartmann will enter into an indemnification agreement in substantially the same form as the Company has entered into with each of the Company’s existing directors. The indemnification agreement requires, among other matters, that the Company indemnify Mr. Hartmann to the fullest extent permitted by law for reasonable expenses and liabilities arising out of any proceeding involving Mr. Hartmann by reason of his service as a member of the Board and advance to him all such expenses, subject to reimbursement if it is subsequently determined that indemnification is not permitted.
