ITEM 5.02

On October 10, 2018, the Board of Directors of Revance Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) appointed Tobin C. Schilke as the Company’s Chief Financial Officer and principal financial officer effective as of November 5, 2018, which is expected to be Mr. Schilke’s employment start date.

Prior to joining the Company, Mr. Schilke, age 43, served as Chief Financial Officer of Achaogen, Inc. from July 2016 through October 2018. Prior to that, he spent 13 years at Roche/Genentech in a variety of finance and operational roles, including Chief Financial Officer of Roche Products Limited in the United Kingdom, Director of Commercial FP&A for Genentech's BioOncology business and M&A Project Manager. Mr. Schilke holds a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Lafayette College, M.S. in Chemical Engineering from University of California, Berkeley and M.B.A. from Cornell University.

The Company has entered into an executive employment agreement with Mr. Schilke (the “Employment Agreement”), pursuant to which Mr. Schilke will receive a signing bonus of $50,000, an annual base salary of $405,000 and an annual target bonus of 45% of his base salary. As an officer of the Company, Mr. Schilke will also be eligible for severance under the Company’s Executive Severance Benefit Plan, as amended.

In connection with the Employment Agreement, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company approved the grant of inducement awards to Mr. Schilke pursuant to Rule 5635(c)(4) of the Nasdaq Listing Rules. Effective as of his employment start date, Mr. Schilke will receive a stock option to purchase 100,000 shares of the Company’s common stock and 18,000 shares of restricted common stock of the Company pursuant to the Company’s Amended and Restated 2014 Inducement Plan. The stock option award will have an exercise price equal to the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the Nasdaq Global Market on Mr. Schilke’s employment start date and will vest monthly over a period of four years, with 25% vesting on the one-year anniversary of his start date and the balance vesting monthly over the remaining three years. The restricted common stock award will vest over a period of four years starting on December 15, 2018, with 25% vesting annually.

There is no arrangement or understanding between Mr. Schilke and any other person pursuant to which he was selected as an officer of the Company, and there are no family relationships between Mr. Schilke and any of the Company’s directors or executive officers. There are no transactions to which the Company is a party and in which Mr. Schilke has a direct or indirect material interest that would be required to be disclosed under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.

Cyril Allouche, the Company’s Head of Finance and Corporate Controller, has been serving as the principal financial officer on an interim basis since June 2018 and will step down from that position effective as of Mr. Schilke’s employment start date, but will continue to serve as the Company’s principal accounting officer.

The foregoing description of the terms of Mr. Schilke’s employment is not complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the complete text of the Employment Agreement, a copy of which will be filed as an exhibit to the Company’s Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ending September 30, 2018.

Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
