On August 6, 2018, Texas Capital Bancshares, Inc. (the "Company"), the parent company of Texas Capital Bank (the "Bank"), announced that John D. Hudgens will step down as chief risk officer of the Bank in September 2018 and will resign as chief risk officer of the Company, effective December 31, 2018. Mr. Hudgens will serve as a vice chairman until his retirement in August 2019.

Veteran banker John Turpen has been named the new chief risk officer of the Bank, effective September 10, 2018. He will assume the role of chief risk officer of the Company on January 1, 2019. Mr. Hudgens and Mr. Turpen will work together for the remainder of 2018 to ensure an effective transition.

Mr. Turpen, age 49, most recently served as chief risk officer for corporate and commercial banking at U.S. Bancorp, the country's fifth largest commercial bank. He led risk activities for the $102 billion corporate and commercial banking division, which consisted of 14 business units, including lending activities, commercial real estate, fixed income, capital markets, international banking, foreign exchange and treasury management. Mr. Turpen, who will be relocating to Dallas, joined U.S. Bancorp in 2009 after holding a number of progressively senior positions in credit, risk and strategic planning at HSBC and Wells Fargo. He earned a bachelor's degree and an MBA from Drake University.

Ellen Detrich has been appointed as the Company's principal accounting officer, succeeding Julie Anderson, who has served as Chief Financial Officer and principal accounting officer of the Company prior to Ms. Detrich’s appointment and continues to serve as its Chief Financial Officer. The appointment is effective immediately. Ms. Detrich, age 36, currently serves as the Executive Vice President and Controller of Texas Capital Bank, a position she has held since 2013.

(e)
On August 6, 2018, Mr. Hudgens executed a Retirement Transition and Award Agreement (the "Retirement Agreement") with the Company which provides for the transition in responsibilities described above. The Retirement Agreement will become effective in accordance with the consideration and revocation periods set forth therein. Pursuant to the Retirement Agreement Mr. Hudgens will continue to receive his base salary through August 31, 2019 (the "Separation Date"), which will be reduced from the current annual rate of $495,000 to an annual rate of $371,250 as of January 1, 2019. In addition, Mr. Hudgens will receive the following compensation in connection with his retirement and continuation of non-competition and non-solicitation obligations through February 2021:

1.
A cash payment equal to eighteen (18) months of Mr. Hudgens base salary as in effect on August 31, 2019, plus a cash payment equal to $428,751, plus an additional cash payment of $400,000, each of such amounts to be payable in equal semi-monthly installments, over a period of eighteen (18) months in accordance with the Company's regular payroll practices (the "Cash Separation Payments").

2.
Continued vesting of the Performance RSUs, as defined in the Retirement Agreement, granted to Mr. Hudgens prior to the date of the Retirement Agreement, pursuant to the Texas Capital Bancshares, Inc. 2015 Long-Term Incentive Plan, as amended ("LTIP"), in accordance with their terms and subject to the achievement of the applicable performance conditions that remain outstanding as of the Separation Date.

3.
Continued vesting of the Time-Based RSUs, as defined in the Retirement Agreement, granted to Mr. Hudgens prior to the date of the Retirement Agreement pursuant to the LTIP that do not otherwise vest on the Separation Date, in accordance with their terms; provided, however, that the value of the Time-Based RSUs shall be determined as of the Separation Date using the average closing price of the Company's common stock for the twenty (20) consecutive trading days immediately prior to December 31, 2018, and all Time-Based RSUs shall be converted as of the Separation Date into the right to receive payment solely in cash on the applicable payment date for each such award.

If Mr. Hudgens’ employment is terminated without cause or for disability prior to the Separation Date, or upon death prior to the date that all Cash Separation Payments have been paid, Mr. Hudgens or his estate will be entitled to receive the Cash Separations Payments as set forth in the Retirement Agreement. If a change in control (as defined in the LTIP) should occur prior to the Separation Date, in lieu of the amounts described





above, Mr. Hudgens will be entitled to receive 2.5 times his average annual base salary and bonus in effect for the two years immediately preceding the change in control.

WHEREAS, the Parties desire to set forth the Executive’s separation benefits and obligations and to finally, fully and completely resolve all matters arising from or during Executive’s employment, any benefits, bonuses and compensation connected with such employment and all other matters that the Parties may have for any reason; and

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises and mutual covenants and agreements hereinafter set forth, and for other good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Parties hereto agree as follows:
1.    End of Executive’s Employment. Executive agrees that during the period commencing on the Effective Date (defined in Section 17 below) and ending on the Separation Date, Executive shall assist with the transition of Executive’s current duties and responsibilities. Executive agrees that as of the first day of employment of his successor he shall voluntarily resign from his position as Chief Risk Officer of TCB and, effective as of December 31, 2018, voluntarily resign from his position as Chief Risk Officer of TCBI and as a member of any board of directors of the Company (or any of its affiliates or subsidiaries) on which

Executive’s employment with the Company shall terminate on the Separation Date. The Company shall continue to employ Executive until the Separation Date, and his salary and all benefits will remain unchanged until such date, except as otherwise expressly provided by Section 2(a) below. Executive agrees that his services shall be available to the Company as needed through the Separation Date and will be subject to the same standards of conduct and performance applicable to all officers and managers of the Company, provided that for the period beginning January 1, 2019 and ending on the Separation Date, he will no longer be subject to the Company’s Corporate Governance Guidelines regarding executive stock ownership. All of Executive’s positions with the Company and its affiliates, including all officer positions, shall terminate effective as of the Separation Date. Executive shall execute all documents and take such further steps as may be required to effectuate such termination(s). Executive shall not perform any work, and shall not make any representations or execute any documents, or take any other actions, on behalf of the Company as of the Separation Date. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Executive agrees to cooperate fully and provide assistance, at the request of the Company, in the orderly transitioning of Executive’s duties and responsibilities to such other persons as the Company shall designate and agrees to thoroughly and diligently perform those duties and actions which are necessary or appropriate to cause such orderly transition. Executive acknowledges and agrees that Executive shall receive no additional compensation for time spent assisting the Company pursuant to this Section 1 other than the compensation and benefits provided for in this Agreement. Executive agrees that this Agreement fully supersedes any and all prior agreements relating to Executive’s employment with the Company, except for the Surviving Provisions.
2.    Consideration.
(a)Prior to the Separation Date, Executive shall continue to receive his base salary and other benefits in accordance with the terms of the Employment Agreement, including an annual cash incentive bonus with respect to 2018 (subject to achievement of any established performance metrics applicable to the named executive officer bonuses for 2018) to be paid at the time bonuses are paid to the Company’s then named executive officers; provided, however, (i) Executive shall not continue to be eligible to receive annual equity incentive grants in 2019 with respect to the fiscal year ending December 31, 2018, nor shall he be eligible to participate in the Company’s annual cash incentive bonus with respect to 2019; and (ii) effective January 1, 2019, Executive’s base salary will be $371,250.
(b)Provided that Executive complies with this Agreement and the Surviving Provisions and does not revoke this Agreement under Section 17, and executes the attached Exhibit B on (but not before) the Separation Date or within seven (7) days following the Separation Date and does not revoke it, in consideration of Executive’s execution of this Agreement and promises herein, including, without limitation, the release of claims against the Company, the Company shall pay Executive the following:
(i)A cash payment equal to (A) eighteen (18) months of Executive’s base salary as in effect on the Separation Date, plus (B) a cash payment equal to $428,751, plus (C) an additional cash payment equal to $400,000, payable in equal semi-monthly installments for a period of eighteen (18) months (the “Severance Period”) in accordance with the Company’s regular payroll practices, (collectively, the amounts in clauses (A), (B), and (C) are referred to herein as the “Cash Severance Payments”), beginning on the first payroll date coinciding with or next following the date that is sixty (60) days after the Separation Date, provided that, (1) as required for compliance with Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”) (as described in Section 2(f) below), the first six (6) months of such payments shall be delayed until the earlier of (x) March 1, 2020 (which is the first day of the seventh month following the Separation Date); or (y) the date of Executive’s





death following the Separation Date, and after the delay in (x) or (y), any installments that would have been made during such period shall be paid to Executive or Executive’s beneficiary in one lump sum on the Company’s first payroll date that is on or after March 1, 2020 (together with accrued interest thereon in accordance with Section 2(f)) and (2) the remaining installments shall be paid in accordance with the Company’s regular payroll practices beginning with the Company’s first payroll period after March 1, 2020 for the remainder of the Severance Period;
(ii)Continued medical insurance benefits for the Severance Period, at the Company’s expense, subject to Executive’s timely election of continuation coverage under the Company’s group health plan in accordance with the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1986, as amended (“COBRA”). For purposes of clarity, Executive shall be eligible to elect COBRA coverage to be effective as of the Separation Date so that there is no break in Executive’s group health care coverage;
(iii)Continued vesting of the Performance RSUs and any other performance-based awards granted to Executive prior to the Separation Date pursuant to the Texas Capital Bancshares, Inc. 2015 Long-Term Incentive Plan, as amended (the “LTIP”) that remain outstanding as of the Separation Date as if Executive had remained actively employed during the entire performance period applicable to each such award, subject to achievement of the applicable performance conditions. The Company agrees to provide Executive with written notice of the achievement of applicable performance metrics and targets and the vesting payment calculations with respect to a specific award at the same time (or as soon as administratively practicable after) the Company notifies its named executive officers of such achievement and calculations;
(iv)During the Severance Period, the Time-Based RSUs and any time-based awards granted to Executive prior to the Separation Date pursuant to the LTIP that do not otherwise vest on the Separation Date in accordance with their terms shall continue to vest, and shall be paid to Executive, at the same time and subject to the same terms as would have applied if Executive had remained employed during the entire vesting period that applies to each such award; provided, however, that the value of any Time-Based RSUs that are unvested as of the Separation Date shall be determined using the average closing price of the Company’s common stock for the twenty (20) consecutive trading days immediately prior to December 31, 2018 and all Time-Based RSUs that are unvested as of the Separation Date shall be converted into the right to receive payment solely in cash (and not in shares) on the applicable payment date for each such award; and
(v)On or within thirty (30) days of the Separation Date, the Company will pay Executive a one-time lump sum payment of $20,000 (less all applicable taxes and withholdings) for Executive’s use in paying his out-of-pocket legal fees and reasonable expenses incurred by Executive in connection with the preparation and negotiation of this Agreement and paying any expenses Executive incurs after the Separation Date for any office and administrative expenses.
The Company shall have no obligation to pay the amounts or provide the benefits described in this Section 2(b) unless Executive executes and does not revoke this Agreement and Exhibit B. All amounts payable pursuant to this Section 2(b) shall be subject to applicable taxes and withholdings. The amounts payable pursuant to this Section 2(b) shall not be treated as compensation under the Company’s 401(k) Plan or any other retirement plan. Executive acknowledges and agrees that Executive is not otherwise entitled to the amounts and benefits set forth in this Section 2(b).
(c)In the event Executive fails to timely execute this Agreement, or revokes this Agreement in accordance with Section 17 below, Executive will only receive his base salary through





his Separation Date, any accrued but unused paid time off, and unreimbursed business expenses in accordance with the Company’s policies.
(d)Other than the compensation and payments provided for in this Agreement, Executive shall not be entitled to any additional compensation, bonuses, payments, grants, options or benefits under any agreement or any benefit plan, long term incentive plan, short term incentive plan, severance plan or bonus or incentive program established by the Company.
(e)Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, and except as otherwise provided by Section 2(f) and Section 8 and subject to and conditioned upon, the execution and delivery by Executive of the Release:
(i)In the event Executive’s employment with the Company is terminated by the Company without Cause (as defined in the Employment Agreement) or due to Executive’s permanent Disability prior to the Separation Date; Executive shall be entitled to receive the Cash Severance Payments at the times and in the forms set forth in Section 2(b)(i) above. For purposes of this Section 2(e), “Disability” means that Executive is incapacitated due to any medically determinable physical or mental impairment that can be expected to result in death or can be expected to last for a continuous period of not less than 12 months, as determined by the Company in its reasonable discretion.
(ii)In the event Executive’s employment with the Company is terminated due to his death prior to the date that all Cash Severance Payments have been paid to Executive pursuant to Section 2(b)(i) above, any unpaid Cash Severance Payments shall be paid to Executive’s estate on the date that is thirty (30) days after the date of Executive’s death.
(iii)In the event a Change in Control (as defined in the LTIP) occurs prior to the Separation Date, then (A) in lieu of the amount set forth in Section 2(b)(i)(A), the Executive shall be eligible to receive 2.5 times Executive’s average annual base salary as in effect for the two years immediately preceding such Change in Control, and (B) in lieu of the amounts set forth in Sections 2(b)(i)(B) and (C), Executive shall be eligible to receive an amount equal to 2.5 times Executive’s average bonus in effect for the two years immediately preceding the Change in Control. If the Change in Control qualifies as a “change in control” for purposes of Section 409A of the Code and the Separation Date occurs within eighteen (18) months following the Change in Control, the amounts described in this Section 2(e)(iii) shall be paid to Executive in a lump sum within thirty (30) days of the Separation Date (or such later date that may be required by Section 2(f) below) and, if such Change in Control does not so qualify, such amounts shall be paid in equal monthly installments for a period of twelve (12) months in accordance with the Company’s regular payroll practices, beginning on the first payroll date coinciding with or next following the date that is sixty (60) days after the Separation Date (or such later date that may be required by Section 2(f) below) and in all cases, provided that Executive complies with this Agreement and the Surviving Provisions and does not revoke this Agreement under Section 17, and executes the attached Exhibit B.
(iv)In the event a Change in Control (as defined in the LTIP) occurs after the Separation Date and prior to the date that all Cash Severance Payments have been paid to Executive pursuant to Section 2(b)(i) above, any unpaid Cash Severance Payments shall be paid to Executive on the first payroll date that is on or after the later of (i) the effective date of the Change in Control or (ii) the sixtieth (60th) day following the date of termination.





(f)    To the extent (i) any payments to which Executive becomes entitled under this Agreement, or any agreement or plan referenced herein, in connection with Executive’s termination of employment with the Company constitute deferred compensation subject to Section 409A of the Code; (ii) Executive is deemed at the time of his separation from service to be a “specified employee” under Section 409A of the Code; and (iii) at the time of Executive’s separation from service the Company is publicly traded (as defined in Section 409A of Code), then such payments (other than any payments permitted by Section 409A of the Code to be paid within six (6) months of Executive’s separation from service) shall not be made until the earlier of (x) March 1, 2020 (which is the first day of the seventh month following the Separation Date); or (y) the date of Executive’s death following such separation from service. During any period that payment or payments to Executive are deferred pursuant to this Section 2(f), Executive shall be entitled to interest on the deferred payment or payments at a per annum rate equal to Federal-Funds rate as published in The Wall Street Journal on the date of Executive’s termination of employment with the Company. Upon the expiration of the applicable deferral period, any payments which would have otherwise been made during that period (whether in a single sum or in installments) in the absence of this Section 2(f) (together with accrued interest thereon) shall be paid to Executive or Executive’s beneficiary in one lump sum on the Company’s first payroll date that is on or after March 1, 2020.

He will assume the role of chief risk officer of Texas Capital Bancshares on January 1, 2019. Hudgens and Turpen will work together the rest of the year to ensure an effective transition.

“John’s business acumen and commitment to developing a strong risk management culture have made him integral to our success as one of the fastest-growing and most successful banks in the country,” said C.
