On April 25, 2014, Bryn Mawr Bank Corporation (the "Company"), parent of The Bryn Mawr Trust Company (the "Bank"), announced a succession plan, whereby, as of May 1, 2014, Francis J. Leto, will succeed Fredrick C. Peters, II, as President of the Company and the Bank. Mr. Leto will also assume the role of Chief Operating Officer of the Company and the Bank ("COO") on May 1, 2014. Mr Peters will remain Chief Executive Officer of the Company and the Bank ("CEO") until his retirement at December 31, 2014, and Mr. Leto will assume the role of CEO as of January 1, 2015.

Mr. Leto, 54, has been a director of the Company and the Bank since 2002, and Executive Vice President and head of the Bank's Wealth Management Division since January 2009, with the added role of General Counsel of the Bank since April 2012. Mr. Leto has also been a member of the Board of Managers of Lau Associates LLC, a subsidiary of the Company, since September 2009 and its predecessor parent holding company, JNJ Holdings LLC, from September 2009 until it was merged out of existence on December 31, 2009. Prior to joining the Company and Bank in an officer capacity, Mr. Leto was General Counsel of Lifestyle Development, LP from October 2007 to January 2009.

On April 25, 2014, the Company, the Bank and Mr. Leto entered into an employment letter agreement (the "Agreement") setting forth the terms of Mr. Leto's employment as President and COO effective May 1, 2014, and CEO effective January 1, 2015. Pursuant to the Agreement, Mr. Leto's annual salary, as may be adjusted from time to time in the Bank's discretion, will be $385,000 from May 1, 2014 until December 31, 2014, and $425,000 beginning on January 1, 2015. Additionally, Mr. Leto will be eligible to earn an annual bonus as determined by the Boards of Directors of the Company (the "Board") and the Bank.

Mr. Leto will also be entitled to participate in all of the Company's and Bank's employee benefit plans and arrangements that are generally available to executives and key management, and to receive reimbursement for reasonable expenses incurred in the performance of his duties. Pursuant to the Agreement, Mr. Leto's employment is on an at-will basis. To the extent Mr. Leto is terminated by the Company and the Bank without Cause, or Mr. Leto voluntarily terminates his employment for Good Reason, Mr. Leto will be entitled to an amount equal to two times his then-annual salary subject to certain conditions (the "Severence Salary Amount"), 100% of applicable COBRA premiums for a period of 18 months post-termination, all Accrued Benefits, and the vesting of the unvested portion of all of Mr. Leto's outstanding equity awards at the date of termination. Pursuant to the Agreement, Mr. Leto agreed to certain restrictive covenants including non-solicitation of employees and clients, non-competion, and confidentiality covenants. The Agreement also entitles Mr. Leto to reimbursement of up to $20,000 in attorneys fees incurred by him in connection with the review and negotiation of the Agreement. Under the terms of the Agreement, effective May 1, 2014, the Restrictive Covenant and Service Agreement entered into between the Bank and Mr. Leto on October 29, 2009 shall terminate, and any cash severence payments to be made to Mr. Leto pursuant to his Executive Change-of-Control Severance Agreement, dated November 2, 2009, will reduce the Severance Salary Amount discussed above.
