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

On October 13, 2022, Hannon Armstrong Sustainable Infrastructure Capital, Inc. (the “Company”) announced the election of Lizabeth “Beth” Ardisana to become a new independent director of the Company’s Board of Directors (the “Board”) effective October 10, 2022. In connection with this election, the Board increased the size of the Board by one director.

Ms. Ardisana is chief executive officer and the principal owner of ASG Renaissance LLC, which she founded in 1987. ASG Renaissance is a technical and communication services firm with more than three decades of experience providing services to a wide range of clients in the automotive, environmental, defense, construction, healthcare, banking and education sectors. She is also chief executive officer of Performance Driven Workforce LLC, a scheduling and staffing firm that was founded in 2015 and has since expanded into five states. Prior to founding ASG Renaissance LLC, Ms. Ardisana worked at Ford Motor Company for 14 years, holding various management positions in vehicle development, product planning and marketing. As a Hispanic and female business owner, Ms. Ardisana is an active business and civic leader in Michigan. She has served on the boards of publicly held Clean Energy Fuels Corp. (Nasdaq: CLNE) since 2019 and Huntington Bancshares Inc. (Nasdaq: HBAN) since 2016. She also serves on the board of the privately held U.S. Sugar Corporation. She was a member of the board of Citizens Republic Bancorp, Inc. from 2004 to 2013, and a member of the board of FirstMerit Corporation from 2013 to 2016. She has held numerous leadership positions in a variety of nonprofit organizations, including The Skillman Foundation, Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, Kettering University, Metropolitan Affairs Coalition, Focus: HOPE, and NextEnergy. Ms. Ardisana was appointed by the governor of Michigan to the executive board of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation and chairs its finance committee. She is the vice chair of the board of Wayne Health, where she serves on the audit committee and compensation committee. Ms. Ardisana holds a Bachelor of Science degree in mathematics and computer science from the University of Texas, a Master of Science degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Michigan, and a Master of Business Administration degree from the University of Detroit.

The Company believes Ms. Ardisana’s significant experience and relationships in the automotive and environmental industries, as well as skills acquired through serving as a chief executive officer and as a member of multiple public and private company boards give her valuable insights and enable her to make significant contributions as a member of the Board.

Effective October 10, 2022, Ms. Ardisana was also appointed by the Board to serve as a member of the Audit Committee. The Board has determined that Ms. Ardisana is independent pursuant to the New York Stock Exchange listing standards, the Company’s corporate governance guidelines and independence standards and the written charter of the Nominating, Governance and Corporate Responsibility Committee.

As independent members of the Board and members of various Board committees, Ms. Ardisana will be entitled to receive a pro rata portion of the annual director compensation as more fully described in the Company's Proxy Statement filed with the SEC on April 18, 2022.

There are no arrangements or understandings with any person pursuant to which Ms. Ardisana was elected as a director of the Board. Ms. Ardisana is not a party to any transaction required to be disclosed pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

    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.
