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.

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:

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").

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.

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.
