On December 8, 2011, the Board of Directors of Corrections Corporation of America (the "Company") appointed Anne L. Mariucci to serve as a member of the Company's Board of Directors (the "Board"), effective immediately, until the Company's 2012 Annual Meeting of Stockholders and until her successor is duly elected and qualified.

In connection with Ms. Mariucci's appointment to the Board, Ms. Mariucci received an initial grant of 986 shares of the Company's restricted common stock and an option to purchase 2,607 shares of the Company's common stock. The restricted stock and the option were issued pursuant to the Company's 2008 Stock Incentive Plan and are subject to individual award agreements, the forms of which were filed previously with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Board has made no determination as to the committee or committees of the Board on which Ms. Mariucci may serve. There were no arrangements or understandings between Ms. Mariucci and any other persons pursuant to which she was selected as a director. In addition, Ms. Mariucci is not a party to any transaction, or any proposed transaction required to be disclosed pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.

Ms. Mariucci will be compensated for her service according to the Company's policy for non-employee directors.

She was employed by Del Webb Corporation from 1984-2003 and served in a variety of senior management capacities, including serving as President following its merger with Pulte Homes Inc., which created the nation's largest homebuilding company. Since 2003, Ms. Mariucci has been affiliated with the private equity firms Hawkeye Partners (Austin, Texas), Inlign Capital Partners (Phoenix, Arizona), and Glencoe Capital (Chicago, Illinois).
