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

On June 23, 2014, Hillenbrand, Inc. (the "Company") announced the appointment of Kristina A. Cerniglia as its Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer. Ms. Cerniglia, 47, joins the Company from Stanley Black & Decker, where she spent the past 17 years in various financial roles, most recently serving as that company's Vice President, Corporate Controller since 2009.

Ms. Cerniglia is expected to start with the Company in early August. Until that time, the Company's Vice President, Controller and Chief Accounting Officer, Elizabeth E. Dreyer, will also continue to serve in the role of interim Chief Financial Officer.

This announcement is more fully described in the press release furnished as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.

On June 18, 2014, the Company entered into an employment agreement with Ms. Cerniglia, the terms and conditions of which are substantially similar (except for compensation and related award amounts) to the agreements the Company has with its other non-CEO executive officers, including customary severance, non-competition and non-solicitation provisions. Ms. Cerniglia will also enter into a change in control agreement similar to the agreements the Company has with its other non-CEO executive officers.

Ms. Cerniglia's compensation package includes an annual base salary of $475,000 and, beginning with fiscal year 2015, an annual short-term incentive compensation target at 75% of base salary, awarded under the Company's short-term incentive compensation plan. Beginning with fiscal year 2015, Ms. Cerniglia will receive annual performance-based equity grants at a target amount of $600,000, awarded under the Company's long-term incentive compensation plan. As an inducement to her and to make her whole for certain annual and long-term incentive and bonus compensation that she is forfeiting, Ms. Cerniglia receives one-time incentives consisting of cash and time-based equity awards in an aggregate amount of $1,980,000, vesting over a period of two years. Ms. Cerniglia will also be eligible to participate in the benefit plans provided to the Company's executive officers generally, as well as other benefits that are commonly found in executive employment agreements.

The foregoing description of Ms. Cerniglia's employment agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of such agreement, a copy of which will be filed with the Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the current quarter.
