Item 8.01. Other Events.
On January 11, 2019, Laura H. Wright, a member of the Board of Trustees (the “Board”) of Pebblebrook Hotel Trust (the “Company”), delivered her notice of resignation from the Board, which will take effect February 15, 2019. Ms. Wright has served as a trustee since the Company’s initial public offering in December 2009. She chaired its Audit Committee from December 2009 until January 2016 and has served on the Board’s Compensation Committee or its Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee since December 2009. Ms. Wright’s notice stated that as her personal and professional commitments have changed, her resignation from the Board provides her the opportunity to balance her schedule and obligations and, given her length of tenure as a trustee of the Company, provides the Board the opportunity to refresh its membership. Her notice further stated that her resignation is not the result of any disagreement. The Board has expressed its deep appreciation to Ms. Wright for her service and significant contributions to the Board and its committees throughout the Company’s public existence.
The Board intends to appoint a replacement independent trustee in due course. Until such appointment, the Board will reduce the size of the Board to six trustees, effective February 15, 2019.
