Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

On March 20, 2013, the Board of Directors of Cross Country Healthcare, Inc. ("Cross Country" or the "Company") appointed William J.

The initial term for the Agreement expires on March 31, 2016, subject to automatic renewal for successive one-year terms unless prior to the end of any renewal term either party has given at least 90 days prior written notice of the intention not to renew the Agreement. The Agreement provides for an annual base salary of $500,000 increasing to $550,000 on the date Mr. Grubbs becomes Chief Executive Officer. The salary is subject to annual review by the Compensation Committee of the Board and Mr. Grubbs is eligible to receive an annual bonus of up to 100% of his base salary based on the level of achievement of performance goals to be established by the Compensation Committee. Mr. Grubbs is eligible to participate in all benefit plans and fringe benefit arrangements available to the Company's senior executives. If Mr. Grubbs' employment is terminated by the Company without cause or Mr. Grubbs terminates his employment for Good Reason (as defined in the Agreement), he will be entitled to a severance payment equal to one year's base salary plus a pro rata portion of the bonus, if any, earned with respect to the year in which such termination occurred. Effective with the commencement of Mr. Grubbs' employment, the Compensation Committee will grant Mr. Grubbs restricted shares with a value of $250,000 as well as 50,000 stock appreciation rights.
