The Board of Directors has determined that all nominees, other than Mr. Bosway, our Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer, are independent directors under the applicable independence standards of the Nasdaq Stock Market ("Nasdaq") and the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC").
Unless instructions to the contrary are received, the persons named as proxies in the attached proxy card intend to vote the shares represented by proxies FOR the election of all nominees as directors, each of whom has consented to serve as a director if elected. If any nominee becomes unavailable for election for any reason, the Board may designate a substitute nominee and the persons named as proxies intend to vote the shares represented by the proxies solicited herewith for such other person or persons as the Board of Directors shall designate. Alternatively, the Board may reduce its size.
The Board of Directors believes that directors should satisfy a number of qualifications, including demonstrated integrity, a record of personal accomplishment, and a commitment to participation in board activities. In recommending the nominees for re-election, the Company's Nominating, Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee considers qualified candidates who will provide the Board of Directors with dedicated service, strong business-related skills and experience, and diversity, as such qualifications are described below under the caption "Director Nomination Process." The table below summarizes the key experience, qualifications, and attributes for each director nominee and highlights the balanced mix of experience, qualifications, and attributes of the Board as a whole. The Nominating, Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee considered these qualifications in determining to recommend to the Board of Directors that the current directors be nominated for re-election. This high-level summary is not intended to be an exhaustive list of each director nominee's skills or contributions to the Board. No individual experience, qualification, or attribute was solely determinative in the Board's decision to re-elect any of the eight nominees.

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE
The Board of Directors is responsible for oversight of management of the business and affairs of the Company with the objective of enhancing stockholder value. The Company has corporate governance practices and policies which the Board of Directors follows with respect to various matters, such as director responsibilities, compensation, and access to management. The Company’s corporate governance documents are available under the Governance Documents section of the Corporate Governance page of the Company’s website at www.gibraltar1.com.

BOARD CHAIR
William T. Bosway has served as President, Chief Executive Officer and a Director of the Company since January 2019, and Chairman of the Board of Directors since January 2022.

LEAD INDEPENDENT DIRECTOR
Atlee Valentine Pope has served as a Director of the Company since February 2020. Chair of the Nominating, Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee from January 2021 to December 2021, and Lead Independent Director since January 2022.
The Board of Directors does not have a policy as to whether the roles of Chair of the Board and Chief Executive Officer should be separate or combined and as such has the authority and flexibility to select the appropriate leadership structure for the Company at the time. Under the Company’s Second Amended and Restated Bylaws, the Chair of the Board presides over meetings of the Board of Directors and meetings of the stockholders, while the CEO has general authority for strategic initiatives involving the business and operational affairs of the Company, subject to the supervision and oversight of the Board.
Currently, the Company's leadership structure includes the combined role of Chair of the Board and CEO, held by Mr. Bosway. The Board of Directors believes combining the role of Chair of the Board and CEO brings to the Board important expertise and leadership and enhances decisive strategic direction and strong execution. The skills and experience of Mr. Bosway are well suited for the role of Chair, putting the Board in a strong position to oversee strategy development, understand market developments, and mitigate risk appropriately. The Board of Directors has determined, after consultation with Korn Ferry, its compensation and corporate governance advisor, that having a combined role of Chair of the Board and CEO is in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders at this time.
To ensure strong independent leadership on the Board, under the Company's corporate governance guidelines, if the roles of Chair of the Board and the CEO are combined, the independent directors annually appoint a Lead Independent Director to strengthen the Board's independent oversight of the policies and strategies of the Company's management. The Company's Lead Independent Director has significant authority in facilitating the Board's independent oversight of management, with key duties and responsibilities including:
Preside at all meetings of the Board at which the Board Chair is not present;
Collaborate with the Board Chair in determining the need for special meetings of the Board;
Call meetings or executive sessions of the independent members of the Board;
Preside at all executive sessions of the independent members of the Board;
Act as principal liaison between the Board Chair and the independent members of the Board relating to matters which are not the responsibility of any of the standing committees of the Board;
Consult with the Board Chair regarding topics to be considered at Board meetings and information provided with respect to such topics;
Approve Board meeting agendas;
2023 PROXY STATEMENT 13

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE
Consult with the Board Chair regarding engagement of consultants by the Board; and
Be available for direct communication with major stockholders or other major stakeholders, in consultation with management and the chair of the applicable Board Committee, as appropriate
The Board believes that an effective Lead Independent Director, such as Ms. Pope, who has significant and clear delineated responsibilities described above, ensures strong, independent oversight of management and promotes effective governance and Board efficiency. The Board believes that this leadership structure ensures that each director's experience, knowledge and insight is leveraged to provide strategic guidance in a demanding and rapidly changing business environment. In addition, the independent directors of our Board meet in executive session at each quarterly board meeting and the Lead Independent Director reports any matters that arise in such executive sessions directly to the Chair and Chief Executive Officer. All of the Board’s key committees - the Audit and Risk Committee; the Capital Structure and Asset Management Committee; the Compensation and Human Capital Committee; and the Nominating, Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee - are comprised solely of and led by independent directors.
Board Retirement Policy and Tenure
Our corporate governance guidelines require our non-employee directors to submit an offer to resign from the Board to the Chair of the Nominating, Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee upon reaching the age of 72, and following each succeeding birthday. We do not have any other tenure limitations, as we believe our retirement policy and succession planning to replace natural turnover achieve the appropriate balance between maintaining long-term directors with deep institutional knowledge and refreshing the Board with new directors who bring new perspectives and diversity to the Board. Whenever possible, we structure director retirements and new director appointments to overlap so institutional knowledge can be transferred to new directors.
As of March 17, 2023, the Company's average tenure for directors standing for election is four years of service.
Risk Oversight and Management
The Board is actively engaged in the oversight of strategies adopted by management for mitigating risks faced by the Company. The effective oversight of risks to which the Company may be exposed requires an understanding of the nature of the risks, the steps management is taking to manage the risks, and a determination of the level of risk which is acceptable to the Company. The involvement of the Board of Directors in reviewing the Company’s enterprise risk management process provides the Board with the information and analysis, if appropriate, to require changes in the Company’s operations or strategies to reflect the Board’s determination of the acceptable level of risk for the Company.
Risks may arise in many different areas, including, among many others, business strategy; financial condition; competition for talent; operational efficiency; cyber-security; quality assurance; environmental, health, and safety; availability of raw materials; supply chain management; reputation; business interruptions or disasters; customer spending patterns; and intellectual property. The Board believes that, in light of the interrelated nature of the Company’s risks, oversight of risk management is ultimately the responsibility of the full Board. While the Board retains ultimate responsibility for oversight of the risks affecting the Company, the Audit and Risk Committee has responsibility for assisting the Board in the review and oversight of risks affecting the Company and risk management strategies developed by management. In addition, committees assist the Board in overseeing and reviewing risk relating to specific programs. The Compensation and Human Capital Committee reviews compensation program structure and design and the related risks and opportunities. The Nominating, Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee oversees the Company's governance policies, Board structure, leadership and independence. In carrying out this critical responsibility, the Board has implemented an enterprise risk management program designed to:
Understand the critical risks in the Company's business and strategy and risk mitigation strategies;
Evaluate the Company’s risk management process and whether it functions adequately;
Facilitate open communication between management and the Directors; and
Foster an appropriate culture of integrity and risk awareness.

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE
The Board discusses risk in general terms throughout the year at its meetings as well as risks in relation to specific proposed actions. While the Board oversees the enterprise risk management process, management is responsible for implementing and executing controls designed to limit risk to the level deemed to be acceptable to the Board. The Company has internal processes and an effective internal control environment which facilitate the identification and management of risks and the quality and effectiveness of the risk related communications with the Board. These include an enterprise risk management program under the leadership of our Chief Financial Officer and our Vice President of Internal Audit, regular reports from management on business strategy, a Code of Ethics and Policy Statement, and product quality standards. Management communicates routinely with members of the Board on the significant risks identified and how they are being managed.
Information Security Risk Oversight
The Board recognizes the importance of maintaining the trust and confidence of our customers, employees, and trading partners, while simultaneously preserving the integrity of our Company's information systems. To those ends, the Board is responsible for the oversight of the Company's information security risk management. To more effectively prevent, monitor, detect, and respond to information security threats, the Company has a dedicated cybersecurity leader reporting directly to the Company's Chief Digital Information Officer. The cybersecurity team is responsible for leading enterprise-wide information security strategy and developing awareness, training, policy, standards, architecture, and processes. The Board is briefed quarterly by senior management on projects to strengthen the Company's cybersecurity controls, assessments of the Company's security program, and the state of our current cybersecurity monitoring.
Stockholder Engagement
The Company’s executive management team routinely meets with its stockholders to discuss the Company’s performance and strategic plan. Further, our executive management team leads stockholder outreach engagements, where we solicit feedback from stockholders on their priorities on corporate governance, compensation, and environmental and social matters.
Our executive management team is committed to continuing a formal stockholder outreach program. Additionally, our executive management team, including the Company’s Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, and Chief Financial Officer, regularly engage in meaningful dialogue with the Company’s stockholders through our quarterly earnings calls, investor conferences, and other channels for communication.
Independence of Directors
The Board of Directors has determined that each of Mark Barberio, Craig Hindman, Gwendolyn Mizell, Linda Myers, James Nish, Atlee Valentine Pope, and Manish Shah is and, while he served as the Chairman Emeritus through May 2022, William Montague was, an “independent director” as defined under, the rules of Nasdaq and the SEC, which the Board has adopted as the standards by which it will determine independence. William Bosway serves as the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer and therefore is not an independent director.
Each member of the Audit and Risk Committee, the Capital Structure and Asset Management Committee, the Compensation and Human Capital Committee, and the Nominating, Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee is independent under Nasdaq rules. In addition, the Board has affirmatively determined that the members of the Audit and Risk Committee and Compensation and Human Capital Committee qualify as independent in accordance with the additional independence rules established by the SEC and Nasdaq.
Board Committees and Related Matters
The Board has four standing committees - the Audit and Risk Committee, the Capital Structure and Asset Management Committee, the Compensation and Human Capital Committee, and the Nominating, Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee. Copies of the charters of these committees are available on the Company’s website at www.gibraltar1.com.

The Compensation and Human Capital Committee acts in accordance with its charter to fulfill the Board's responsibilities relating to establishment of compensation of the Company's executive officers and non-employee directors and to provide oversight and strategic guidance on the Company's human capital management including corporate culture, diversity and inclusion, talent management, career development and progression, key executive succession planning, benefit plans and policies, workplace environment and safety, employee relations and other matters impacting the Company's ability to attract and retain a stable and productive workforce. The Compensation and Human Capital Committee also monitors the Company's progress toward the overall implementation of its diversity and inclusion objectives.
The Compensation and Human Capital Committee reviews and approves corporate goals and objectives relevant to the compensation payable to the CEO and other executive officers, evaluates the performance of the CEO and other executive officers in light of those goals and objectives, and establishes the compensation, including base salary, annual incentive compensation and long term compensation of the CEO and other executive officers based on this evaluation. The Compensation and Human Capital Committee also reviews and approves the compensation, including base salary, annual incentive compensation and long term compensation, payable to the direct reports of the CEO. The Compensation and Human Capital Committee is also responsible for the administration of the Company’s incentive compensation plans and authorization of grants of equity-based awards pursuant to such plans. The Compensation and Human Capital Committee delegates its authority for the administration of the incentive compensation plans and authorization of grants of equity-based awards pursuant to such plans to executive management with regards to non-executive management of the Company.
To fulfill its responsibilities, the Compensation and Human Capital Committee has the authority to retain and obtain advice from advisors. The Compensation and Human Capital Committee employs a nationally recognized compensation consultant, Korn Ferry, to serve as an independent compensation advisor, perform market studies of compensation programs offered by a peer group of companies, and provide information on market compensation practices. The Compensation and Human Capital Committee determined Korn Ferry is an independent advisor by assessing the firm on six independence factors as prescribed by the SEC. The Compensation and Human Capital Committee worked with Korn Ferry and the Company’s executive management team to make final decisions regarding the design of the programs used to compensate the Company’s executive officers and directors in a manner which is consistent with the Company’s compensation objectives. The amount of fees paid for these services performed by Korn Ferry was $151,667 during 2022.

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE
The purposes of the Nominating, Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee are to:
identify and recommend to the Board the nomination of individuals qualified to become Board and committee members;
establish and implement policies and procedures relating to the nominations of qualified candidates;
develop and recommend to the Board a set of corporate governance guidelines for the Company;
provide oversight and strategic guidance on environmental, social and governance matters significant to the Company; and
oversee, review, and make periodic recommendations to the Board concerning the Company’s corporate governance guidelines and policies.
The Nominating, Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee is responsible for establishing criteria for Board membership, including experience and independence, and for reviewing candidates for the Board, including those recommended by stockholders.
The Nominating, Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee oversees the directors’ continuing education, which includes seminars focused on strategic and governance issues and the evaluation process for the Board and committees.
The Nominating, Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee also provides strategic guidance on the Company's approach to corporate social responsibility and ensures it aligns with the Company's overall business strategy and corporate best practices and on Company social responsibility policies and initiatives, including but not limited to human rights, the Company's stakeholder relationships, and product safety.
Director Nomination Process
When the Nominating, Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee recruits new director candidates, the committee seeks to identify candidates for nomination who are highly qualified, willing to serve as a member of the Company’s Board and will be able to serve the best interests of stockholders. The Nominating, Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee considers the following when identifying new director candidates:
integrity, high personal and professional ethics, mature judgment;
whether a candidate is “independent” within the meaning of such term in accordance with the applicable listing standards of Nasdaq and the rules promulgated by the SEC; and
a diversity of background and achievement including in business, government, education and technology as relevant to the Company’s strategic needs and desire to have a diverse board composition.
The Nominating, Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee believes that, given the size and complexity of the Company’s operations, the best interests of the Company’s stockholders will be served by a Board composed of individuals that contribute to the Board’s overall diversity - diversity being broadly construed to mean a variety of opinions, perspectives, as well as personal and professional experiences and backgrounds. Accordingly, the Nominating, Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee seeks to identify candidates for nomination who will contribute to the diversity of perspectives present in Board deliberations. During the nomination process, the Nominating, Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee considers whether the Board’s composition reflects an appropriately diverse mix of skills and experience in relation to the needs of the Company.
The Nominating, Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee identifies candidates from several sources including directors on the Board, Gibraltar’s executive management team, search firms and research, including database and internet searches. All potential candidates for a director role, including directors being nominated for re-election, are considered and evaluated against the qualifications outlined above.

Stockholder Recommendations of Nominees
The Company has adopted a policy regarding stockholder recommendations of nominees for director to be submitted for evaluation to the Nominating, Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee. A stockholder may, at any time prior to the deadline for the submission of stockholder proposals, recommend a nominee for consideration by the Nominating, Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee by sending a recommendation, in writing, to the Secretary of the Company or any member of the Nominating, Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee, together with such supporting material as the stockholder deems appropriate.

During 2022, the Nominating, Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee did not receive any nomination recommendations from stockholders.
Succession Planning
Considering the critical importance of executive leadership to Gibraltar’s success, we have a succession planning process that is enterprise-wide for managers up to and including our Chief Executive Officer. Our Board of Directors’ involvement in the process includes a review of succession plans and recommendations as to succession in the event of each executive officer’s termination of employment for any reason.
Our Chief Executive Officer provides an annual review to the Board assessing the performance of the executive officers of Gibraltar. The Board has the responsibility to review succession plans for the Chief Executive Officer and other key executive positions.
The Board and the Nominating, Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee also work together to assess the composition, tenure, and diversity of the Board of Directors and evaluate succession planning considerations when recommending Board nominees.
Director Education
New directors participate in an orientation process to become familiar with the Company. This process includes a review of the Company's strategic plans and businesses, significant financial matters, core values, including ethics, compliance, corporate governance practices and other key policies and practices through a review of Company and Board background materials, and meetings with the Company’s executive management.
Each Director is required to complete the Company's annual ethics and compliance and cybersecurity training which was approximately 11.5 hours during 2022. The Company provides directors with continuing education regarding corporate governance and specific business-related issues and strategic priorities. Throughout the year, the Board also regularly meets with business unit management and participates in facility tours. Additionally, the Company engages third parties to provide presentations on relevant topics during board meetings. Directors are also provided access to third party resources and membership through organizations such as the National Association of Corporate Directors and the opportunity to participate in third party educational programs.

2023 PROXY STATEMENT 23

COMPENSATION OF DIRECTORS
Our Compensation and Human Capital Committee engaged Korn Ferry to review survey information, and provide other publicly available information and advice to the Compensation and Human Capital Committee with respect to compensation-related matters for non-employee director compensation for a peer group of companies. The peer group is the same as the peer group disclosed in the section entitled “Compensation Discussion and Analysis” below.
Non-Employee Director Compensation Program
The Compensation and Human Capital Committee reviewed information provided by Korn Ferry relating to Board compensation in relation to compensation earned by the directors of our peer group of companies. After this review in April 2022, the Compensation and Human Capital Committee approved a compensation program for non-employee directors consisting of the following cash compensation, effective as of May 4, 2022:
an annual cash retainer of $65,000;
an annual payment for each Board committee on which he or she serves equal to $10,000;
an additional annual fee of $25,000 for the Lead Independent Director;
an additional annual fee to the Chair of the Audit and Risk Committee of $10,000;
an additional annual fee to the Chair of the Compensation and Human Capital Committee of $7,500;
an additional annual fee to the Chair of the Capital Structure and Asset Management Committee of $7,500; and
an additional annual fee to the Chair of the Nominating, Governance and Corporate Social Responsibility Committee of $5,000.
All retainers are paid quarterly in advance unless deferred under the MSPP as describe below. In addition, the Compensation and Human Capital Committee approved annual grants of stock to each non-employee director having an aggregate fair value equal to $105,000, which is consistent with the aggregate fair value of the 2021 annual grant. These shares vest immediately and are delivered to directors unless a Director elects to defer for future issuance the receipt of all or a portion of the stock award received. Pursuant to this approval, non-employee directors received awards of stock in May 2022.
The Company does not provide any perquisites to directors, but does reimburse directors for out-of-pocket expenses incurred for continuing education and in attending Board and committee meetings. Directors who are employees or officers of the Company do not receive any additional compensation for Board services.
Management Stock Purchase Plan for Non-Employee Directors
Our Management Stock Purchase Plan (“MSPP”) permits non-employee directors to defer their receipt of payment of a portion of their cash retainer to an account ("MSPP Deferral Account") established for the non-employee director which is credited with hypothetical units that track the common stock of the Company (“Deferral Units”) equal to the number of shares of the Company’s common stock that could have been purchased using the amount of director fees deferred based on a 90-day rolling price per share of the Company's stock as deferral date.
Under the MSPP, the amount deferred and to be paid in cash to a non-employee director upon termination of the non-employee director's service on the Board is equal to the Deferral Units credited to their MSPP Deferral Account multiplied by the 200-day rolling average price per share of the Company’s stock, determined as of the immediately preceding calendar-month's end date immediately preceding the date the participant becomes eligible to receive a distribution of their account under the MSPP.
Payment of the amount determined above is made to the non-employee director based on an election made by the non-employee director prior to the deferral in either (a) a lump sum, (b) five substantially equal annual installments, or (c) ten substantially equal annual installments, in each case, beginning six months after the date of termination. During the period that the installment payments are being made, the undistributed value of the non-employee director's account will earn interest at a rate equal to the average annualized rate of interest payable on ten-year US Treasury Notes plus two percent (2%).
Deferral Plan for Non-Employee Directors
Non-employee directors have the right to defer receipt of all, or a portion, of the stock award that they receive. The deferred share awards are in the form of Deferred Share Units ("DSUs"). DSUs are converted to shares and issued six months after termination of the non-employee director's service.

Non-Employee Director Stock Ownership Guidelines
In accordance with the Company's Stock Ownership Policy, non-employee directors are required to hold 350% of their retainer in shares of the Company's common stock or other permitted equity interest within three years of joining the Board. For purposes of determining value of shares held, shares include common stock owned by the non-employee director, including those owned by spouse and/or minor children, deferred share units, and restricted stock units settled in the Company's common stock. The value of shares held is determined based on current fair market value.

PROPOSAL 2 - TIMING OF ADVISORY VOTE ON EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION (“SAY-WHEN-ON-PAY”)
We are providing our stockholders with the opportunity to cast an advisory Say-When-on-Pay vote, as required pursuant to Section 14A of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. This vote is required to be held at least once every six years and gives our stockholders the opportunity to express a preference as to whether the Say-on-Pay vote will occur every one, two, or three years. Stockholders may vote for one of these options or may choose to abstain from voting on the matter. Based on many factors, including but not limited to those provided below, the Board has determined that a Say-on-Pay vote should occur every year.

PROPOSAL 2 - TIMING OF ADVISORY VOTE ON EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION ("SAY-WHEN-ON-PAY")
The Board of Directors recognizes the importance of receiving regular input from our stockholders on important issues, such as our compensation policies and procedures. The Board believes it is appropriate for executive compensation to continue to be submitted to an advisory vote of stockholders on an annual basis. An annual advisory vote on our executive compensation will allow the Board and Compensation and Human Capital Committee to regularly receive an updated evaluation and meaningful input from stockholders on the compensation of our executive officers and on our executive compensation policies, practices and procedures.
This vote is an advisory vote and is therefore not binding on the Company or the Board of Directors. However, the Board and the Compensation and Human Capital Committee will carefully review the outcome of the vote and likely make a decision that is consistent with the outcome of the vote as to the policy to be adopted by the Board on the frequency of future Say-on-Pay votes.
THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS RECOMMENDS A VOTE “FOR” THE OPTION OF EVERY ONE YEAR AS THE FREQUENCY WITH WHICH STOCKHOLDERS WILL BE PROVIDED AN ADVISORY VOTE ON EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION, AS DISCLOSED PURSUANT TO THE COMPENSATION DISCLOSURE RULES OF THE SEC IN PROPOSAL 2.


PROPOSAL 3 - ADVISORY VOTE ON EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION
(“SAY-ON-PAY”)
We are providing our stockholders with the opportunity to cast an advisory vote to approve the compensation of our named executive officers as described in this Proxy Statement (commonly referred to as the “Say-on-Pay” vote) as required pursuant to Section 14A of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. The Say-on-Pay vote is advisory, and therefore not binding on the Company or the Compensation and Human Capital Committee. However, the outcome of the vote will provide information to the Company and the Compensation and Human Capital Committee regarding stockholder sentiment about our compensation policies and procedures, which the Compensation and Human Capital Committee will carefully review and consider when making future decisions regarding the compensation of our executive officers. Stockholders are encouraged to read the section below entitled “Compensation Discussion and Analysis,” which describes how our compensation policies and procedures implement our compensation philosophy.
In a non-binding advisory vote on the frequency of the say-on-pay proposal held at our 2017 annual meeting of stockholders, a majority of stockholders voted in favor of holding say-on-pay votes annually. In light of this result and other factors considered by the Board, the Board determined that the Company would hold advisory say-on-pay votes on an annual basis until the next required advisory vote on such frequency, which is taking place this year and is included in this Proxy Statement as Proposal 2.
Our Compensation and Human Capital Committee has designed our executive compensation program to link pay with performance, and enable the Company to attract and retain qualified talent on the executive management team. We believe the Say-on-Pay vote represents an additional means by which our Compensation and Human Capital Committee may obtain important feedback from our stockholders about the executive compensation program it has designed for our executive officers.
2023 PROXY STATEMENT 27

PROPOSAL 3 - ADVISORY VOTE ON EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION ("SAY-ON-PAY")
As set forth in the Compensation Discussion and Analysis, the overall objective of our executive compensation program is to attract and retain the talent necessary to ensure Gibraltar’s continued success and to ensure alignment of executive pay with stockholder interests and support Company goals and strategies. To achieve this, the Compensation and Human Capital Committee has designed compensation programs that:
provide competitive total pay opportunity levels relative to an appropriate group of our peer companies;
drive high performance by our executive officers through the use of programs that support and reward desired business results;
provide opportunities for high performing executive officers to achieve above market rewards;
reinforce our commitment to operational excellence, quality, safety, innovation, and the environment;
manage current and future programs and risks; and
provide the flexibility to vary compensation costs through periods of change in our business.
A significant portion of the total compensation of our executive officers is performance-based, in that it depends on the achievement of both short and long-term financial goals and strategic objectives. Additionally, by using our common stock as long-term incentive compensation, we incentivize the establishment and implementation of policies and programs which we anticipate will improve the price of our stock.
In 2022, performance-based compensation represented 63% of our Chief Executive Officer’s targeted total compensation and an average of 48% of the targeted total compensation of our other named executive officers. We believe that this emphasis on both short and long-term financial performance in our compensation structure aligns executives’ and stockholders’ interests. The Compensation and Human Capital Committee believes that the executive compensation program is closely aligned with the long-term interests of our stockholders and is effective in implementing our compensation philosophy and in achieving our strategic goals.
The Say-on-Pay vote gives you, as a stockholder, the opportunity to provide feedback on our executive compensation program by voting for or against the following resolution:
“RESOLVED, that the stockholders of Gibraltar Industries, Inc. (the “Company”) approve, on an advisory basis, the compensation of the Company’s named executive officers, as disclosed in this Definitive Proxy Statement pursuant to the compensation disclosure rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, including the Compensation Discussion and Analysis, the Summary Compensation Table, and other related tables and disclosure.”
The Board urges stockholders to endorse the executive compensation program by voting in favor of this resolution. As set forth below in the Compensation Discussion and Analysis, the Compensation and Human Capital Committee is of the view that the executive compensation for 2022 was reasonable and appropriate, justified by the performance of the Company and the result of a carefully considered approach.
Although the Say-on-Pay vote is non-binding, the Board of Directors and Compensation and Human Capital Committee will carefully consider the outcome of the Say-on-Pay vote, as well as other communications from stockholders relating to our compensation practices, in future determinations concerning our executive compensation program.
THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS RECOMMENDS THAT YOU VOTE “FOR” THE ADVISORY APPROVAL OF THE COMPENSATION OF OUR NAMED EXECUTIVE OFFICERS AS DISCLOSED IN THIS PROXY STATEMENT IN PROPOSAL 3.

In 2022, we focused on our key initiatives, improved profitability and margin compared to 2021, and we:
generated net sales of $1.4 billion, up 4% compared to the prior year;
increased GAAP and adjusted net income from continuing operations by 9% and 15%, respectively;
increased GAAP and adjusted earnings per share from continuing operations by 14% and 19%, respectively;
acquired a business to expand our Residential Products segment; and
made the decision to exit our processing equipment business in our Agtech segment.
The Compensation and Human Capital Committee set 2022 targets at levels that exceeded 2021 actual results. In 2022, the Company improved and exceeded the threshold level of performance for the net sales, adjusted EPS and ROIC performance metrics and did not meet the threshold level of performance for the days working capital metric.

Focus on mitigating undue risk in compensation programs
The Compensation and Human Capital Committee believes that the Company’s pay-for-performance philosophy and commitment to compensation programs that encourage the creation of sustainable, long-term stockholder value and alignment of the interests of the named executive officers with those of our stockholders have been successful in encouraging consistent improvement in the Company’s operating results.
The summary above, as well as the information contained in this CD&A, reflects the Compensation and Human Capital Committee’s aim to design a compensation program that fairly rewards our executive officers based on performance that is consistent with best practices and in line with pay practices used by our peer group.

Say-on-Pay Vote Results and Response
Based on the results of the Say-on-Pay vote at the 2022 Annual Meeting of Stockholders, in which Gibraltar received 96.1% support from its stockholders, the Compensation and Human Capital Committee concluded that the vast majority of stockholders supported the Company’s compensation programs. The Compensation and Human Capital Committee therefore determined that is was not necessary to make any material changes to our executive compensation program as a result of the Say-on-Pay vote.

COMPENSATION DISCUSSION & ANALYSIS

Compensation Philosophy and Pay-for-Performance
The Compensation and Human Capital Committee’s executive pay philosophy is designed to promote alignment of executive pay with stockholder interests and to support Company goals and strategies. Executive compensation programs are designed and managed to promote value creation, to advance overall business objectives, to attract and retain the workforce necessary to ensure the Company’s continued success, and to support Gibraltar’s position as a leading manufacturer and provider of products and services for renewable energy, residential, agtech and infrastructure markets. From time to time, the executive pay philosophy may be adjusted as necessary, to ensure alignment of executive pay with stockholder interests and to support the Company’s goals and strategies.
The Compensation and Human Capital Committee focuses the design and delivery of the Company’s compensation programs to achieve the following:
Provide competitive total pay opportunity levels relative to an appropriate group of our peer companies;
Drive high performance by our executive officers through the use of programs that support and reward desired business results;
Provide opportunities for high performing executive officers to achieve above market rewards;
Provide the ability to attract and retain highly qualified executive officers;
Reinforce our commitment to operational excellence, quality, safety, innovation, and to the environment;
Manage current and future programs and risks; and
Provide the flexibility to vary compensation costs through periods of change in our business.
We believe our named executive officer’s interests are more directly aligned with the interests of our stockholders when compensation programs are significantly aligned with and impacted by the value of our Common Stock, encourage ownership of our Common Stock, and reward both short and long-term financial performance. The significant elements of our compensation program for executive officers include base salary, the annual Management Incentive Compensation Plan (“MICP”), equity-based incentive compensation under the Long-Term Incentive Plan (“LTIP”), other perquisites, and non-qualified equity-based deferred compensation plan (“2018 MSPP”).
The Compensation and Human Capital Committee believes our LTIP, which includes performance-based and time-based equity awards, furthers the objectives noted above and directly aligns with the interest of our stockholders. Another element of our compensation program, the MICP, provides an annual incentive program to our executives which is based upon the achievement of financial and strategic goals. The Compensation and Human Capital Committee believes the other elements of our compensation program are competitive with the market for our management talent and allow us to attract and retain a highly qualified senior management team. As a result, the compensation programs include a substantial portion of performance-based compensation, including the MICP and performance-based equity awards issued under the LTIP.
Consistent with our executive pay philosophy, our CEO’s target compensation is designed to be heavily weighted toward performance-based compensation. During 2022, as depicted in the following chart, 63% of our CEO’s target compensation was provided in the form of performance-based compensation, with an additional 19% attributed to time-vested stock awards. During 2022, on average, 48% of our other NEOs' target compensation was performance-based compensation, with another 11% attributed to time-vested stock awards. The long-term value of time-vested stock awards will fluctuate with our stock price, thus aligning our executive officers’ interests with our stockholders’ interests.

"At Risk" Performance-Based Compensation 63%
"At Risk" Performance-Based Compensation 48%
Performance-based compensation consists of annual incentive compensation and performance-based equity awards. A significant portion of the executive officers’ compensation is at-risk based on the value of the Company’s common stock and financial performance. The above charts include targeted compensation generated from the Company match, assuming full allowable amount eligible to be deferred, which is provided for salary and MICP deferrals into our non-qualified deferred compensation plans, and is an important part of our compensation program. Compensation deferred into the 2018 MSPP and any amounts that are matched, are converted to restricted stock units and are also at-risk, since they are based on the value of the Company’s Common Stock. The structure of our non-qualified deferred compensation plans furthers our goal of aligning the interest of our executive officers with the interests of our stockholders as it encourages the deferral of their current compensation for a future payment based on the Company’s future stock price.
The Compensation and Human Capital Committee believes the structure of the MICP incentivizes management to simplify and improve the Company’s operations to generate higher earnings, at a higher rate of return, with a more efficient use of capital.
The other significant components of compensation for our executive officers are not at-risk and consist of a competitive base salary and long-term incentive compensation consisting of time-based restricted stock units (“RSUs”). The RSUs convert to shares over a vesting period generally consisting of four years. The Compensation and Human Capital Committee believes the RSU awards align the executive officers’ goals with the interests of our stockholders as the officers are incentivized to adopt a long-term approach to value creation and increase the stock price through ownership of RSUs and shares of the Company’s common stock. We believe time-based equity awards provide a good balance between performance and share ownership which aligns with long term interests of our stockholders while at the same time encouraging continuity of our executive management.

COMPENSATION DISCUSSION & ANALYSIS

Distinguishing Awarded Compensation from Realized Compensation
It is important to distinguish the compensation awarded to our named executive officers in 2022, as required to be reported under applicable SEC rules, from the compensation that was actually earned by our named executive officers. Compensation reported within the Summary Compensation Table uses different measurements of the compensation reported depending on the type of compensation. The PSU compensation reported for each executive officer is disclosed at targeted award value, or grant-date fair value, while the compensation from the MICP reported in the table reflects the actual amount earned and paid to the named executive officers, or realized value. If both portions of performance-based compensation were measured at their realized value, it would show the impact of actual performance on each named executive officer’s compensation.
The chart and table below show the performance-based and deferred compensation components of total compensation realized by our named executive officers in 2022.
Amounts shown for each "Target" pay column reflect (A) Total Fixed Compensation and (B) Performance-Based Compensation of (i) target annual incentive compensation calculated based upon a percentage of each named executive officer's base salary as of December 31, 2022 at the target MICP payout percentage, (ii) the grant-date fair value of PSU awards that corresponds to the Summary Compensation Table, and (iii) 2018 MSPP matching contributions related to the 2022 annual incentive compensation award at target.
Amounts shown for each "Realized" pay column reflect (A) Total Fixed Compensation and (B) Performance-Based Compensation of (i) annual incentive compensation calculated based upon a percentage of each named executive officers base salary as of December 31, 2022 at the actual MICP payout percentage, (ii) the grant-date fair value of PSU awards multiplied by the actual 2022 PSU payout percentage, and (iii) 2018 MSPP matching contributions related to the 2022 annual incentive compensation award at the (a) actual MICP payout percentage and (b) each named executive officer's deferral election.
As shown below, the realized compensation earned by each Named Executive Officer ranged from 73% to 86% of targeted compensation. Realized compensation was less than target compensation as a result of the Company’s performance in relation to the performance goals set for the MICP and PSU awards. The Compensation and Human Capital Committee believes realized compensation is an important metric to understand when evaluating the effectiveness of the Company’s compensation programs.

COMPENSATION DISCUSSION & ANALYSIS

Design of the Compensation Program
The Compensation and Human Capital Committee engaged an independent compensation advisor, Korn Ferry, to provide survey information and assistance in connection with the review and analysis of the compensation program for our executive officers in 2022 to confirm that the emphasis of this program is on performance and long-term incentives and is competitive within our industry in terms of base salaries, annual incentives, and long-term incentives. These three components are the key elements of the compensation program provided to our executive management team.
The Company’s compensation program is reviewed annually to ensure that the goals of the program are met and is amended from time to time to incorporate changes consistent with current industry best practices. The compensation program compensates our executive officers through a mix of base salary, annual incentive payments, and long-term equity-based incentives.
Peer Company Analysis
The relative levels of targeted compensation of our executive officers are determined, in part, by reference to compensation paid to similarly situated executives by a peer group of companies selected by the Compensation and Human Capital Committee along with survey data in consultation with Korn Ferry. The peer group selected by the Compensation and Human Capital Committee consisted of the following companies:
Aaon, Inc.Eagle Materials, Inc.Quanex Building Products Corporation
Albany International CorporationGriffon CorporationSimpson Manufacturing Co., Inc.
American Woodmark CorporationInsteel Industries, Inc.Trex Company, Inc.
Apogee Enterprises, Inc.L.B. Foster Company
Armstrong World Industries, Inc.Masonite International Corporation
Array Technologies, Inc.PGT Innovations, Inc.
The Company made changes to its peer group used to determine compensation in 2023 from the peer group used to determine compensation in 2022 by adding one peer company, Array Technologies, Inc., and by removing three peer companies, A.O. Smith Corporation, Enerpac Tool Group Corporation, and Patrick Industries, Inc. The Compensation and Human Capital Committee believes the chosen peer group aligns with best practices as it provides a sufficient sample size from which we draw conclusions, and reflects a representative market for executive talent that our business faces. The peer companies were selected based on their comparable size, as measured by net sales and market capitalization, and industry. Companies within the selected peer group are businesses supporting the building products, industrial products or renewables industries.
Compensation and Human Capital Committee Approval Process
Management recommendations for salary increases and participation levels for all other components of our compensation program, for all executive officers other than the CEO, are made annually and are based on the CEO’s evaluation of each executive officer’s performance, length of service to the Company, experience, level of responsibility, the Company’s financial position, and degree to which his or her efforts have contributed to the implementation of the Company’s strategies and goals. This information, along with the information provided by Korn Ferry, is then used by the Compensation and Human Capital Committee to review and establish the compensation of each executive officer. The CEO’s compensation package is determined by the Compensation and Human Capital Committee based upon the same criteria. No executive officer provides input or participates in the deliberation of the Compensation and Human Capital Committee with respect to his or her own compensation.
Final authority for the establishment of annual compensation packages of our executive officers resides with the Compensation and Human Capital Committee. Once base salaries and participation levels are established, the formula-driven components of our compensation program are applied to determine the amount of the total compensation which our executive officers will be entitled to receive based upon the degree to which the Company’s annual goals have been achieved.
2023 PROXY STATEMENT 35

COMPENSATION DISCUSSION & ANALYSIS
Based on the peer group analysis described above along with CEO (other than in the case of the CEO's compensation) and Compensation and Human Capital Committee review, targeted annual incentive compensation and long-term equity-based incentive compensation components of each executive officer’s total compensation were set at percentages of each executive officer’s base salary. This provides the executive officers and stockholders a degree of certainty as to the level of incentive compensation which executive officers will be entitled to receive upon attainment of a specified level of performance.
The following table summarizes the targeted level of compensation for annual cash incentive compensation and long-term equity-based incentive awards (including RSUs and PSUs) for each NEO established by the Compensation and Human Capital Committee for 2022:
Named Executive OfficerPercentage of Salary
Annual Incentive Compensation (MICP)Long-Term Equity Compensation (LTIP)
William T. Bosway120%350%
Timothy F. Murphy60%145%
Katherine E. Bolanowski35%65%
Jeffrey J. Watorek25%75%
Patrick M. Burns60%145%
Elizabeth R. Jensen40%100%
The Compensation and Human Capital Committee set the targeted annual incentive compensation and long-term equity-based incentive compensation levels as a percentage of salary for individual in consultation with Korn Ferry, considering peer group practices, survey data, length of service and role at the Company. The Compensation and Human Capital Committee considers these compensation levels reasonable in comparison to the peer companies described above and tailored to the Company’s leadership structure, level of responsibility, and emphasis on pay-for-performance while also emphasizing stock ownership which the committee believes aligns management’s interests with the interests of our stockholders.
Consideration of Risk
We believe the design of our executive compensation program provides an appropriate balance of incentives for executives and avoids inappropriate risks. Our compensation program is balanced and focused on the long-term so that our executive officers are incentivized to deliver superior performance over sustained periods. In an effort to promote a focus on the long-term, these compensation plans are designed to allow for deferral of compensation and have elements that are only realizable upon completion of a five-year service requirement under the 2018 MSPP. We believe these plans provide strong incentives to implement policies that promote long-term value creation while avoiding excessive risk-taking in the short-term.
Performance goals are established to align with our overall risk framework and reflect a balanced mix of financial measures designed to avoid placing excessive weight on a single measure. Compensation is also balanced among current cash payments, deferred cash, and equity awards. With limited exceptions, the Compensation and Human Capital Committee retains discretion to adjust compensation for quality of performance and adherence to Company values. Additionally, we have policies in place that limit the amount of compensation that can be earned under performance-based incentive programs, require our executive officers to own certain levels of Company stock, prohibit hedging and pledging activities, and include a Clawback Policy for all performance-based compensation.

COMPENSATION DISCUSSION & ANALYSIS

Elements of Our Compensation Program
Our fiscal 2022 compensation program for named executive officers contained the following elements:
Base Salary
Base salary is annual fixed cash compensation and is the principal non-variable element of the Company's total compensation program.
The Compensation and Human Capital Committee reviews and approves base salaries generally at its February meeting with new salaries effective early March of the same year. Base salaries for our named executive officers reflect the level, scope and complexity of the named executive officer's role and responsibility and whether their base salary is appropriately positioned relative to similarly situated executives in our peer group and survey data. Our competitive analysis includes a review of the base salaries paid by our peer group companies to their executive officers and survey data. For fiscal 2022, the Compensation and Human Capital Committee reviewed and approved the base salaries shown below.

Annual Management Incentive Compensation Plan
Our annual Management Incentive Compensation Plan (“MICP”) is designed to provide alignment between executive management’s cash compensation with stockholder interests by rewarding management for achievement of performance targets that the Compensation and Human Capital Committee believes will enhance stockholder value. The performance goals and weightings are reviewed by the Compensation and Human Capital Committee with management on an annual basis and adjusted if deemed appropriate by the Compensation and Human Capital Committee.
The Compensation and Human Capital Committee reviews and alters the weightings and the targets to ensure the management team focuses on the key metrics during different periods. Seventy-five percent (75%) of the overall annual MICP payout is based on net sales and adjusted earnings per share ("adjusted EPS"), which are evaluated in a nine-by-nine matrix with a payout between 35% to 200% of target. The 35% payout is earned if both net sales and adjusted EPS meet the threshold levels of achievement, and 200% is earned if both net sales and adjusted EPS meet or exceed the 200% achievement levels. If either actual net sales or actual adjusted EPS is less than the threshold level of achievement, the payout percentage is zero. The remaining twenty-five percent (25%) of the overall annual MICP payout is based on days working capital ("DWC") with a payout between 35% to 200% of target. The 35% payout is earned if the DWC threshold level of achievement is met, and the 200% payout is earned if the actual DWC meets or exceeds the 200% achievement level. If actual DWC is less than the threshold level of achievement, the payout percentage is zero. See the detailed description of net sales, adjusted EPS and DWC in Appendix A.
The following graphic illustrates the weighting of the performance goals and the calculation of the financial performance goals of the 2022 annual MICP.

COMPENSATION DISCUSSION & ANALYSIS
The Compensation and Human Capital Committee believes that incentivizing management to deliver improved earnings with a focus on the efficient use of capital will provide stockholders with value as higher profits and lower working capital requirements lead to increased cash flow used to fund growth initiatives of the Company, including acquisitions.
In addition, the Compensation and Human Capital Committee believes the combination of the three financial performance targets of Net Sales, Adjusted EPS, and DWC, incentivizes management to maximize the return on investment for our stockholders. The Compensation and Human Capital Committee concluded that the metrics used in the determination of the annual MICP payout are effectively connected to the creation of stockholder value.
The Compensation and Human Capital Committee uses adjusted financial information to determine the incentive compensation paid to named executive officers under our performance-based compensation plans in order to keep management motivated to make hard decisions to drive long-term value creation, such as entering into restructuring plans and making acquisitions and divestitures despite the short-term costs associated with these activities. These items normally are not subject to the budgeting process and cannot necessarily be anticipated.
Equity-based Incentive Compensation
We maintain equity-based incentive compensation plans known as the Gibraltar Industries, Inc. 2015 Equity Incentive Plan and 2018 Equity Incentive Plan (the “Omnibus Plans”). Our Omnibus Plans are an integral component of our overall compensation structure and provide the Company the vehicles through which we make awards of equity-based compensation to our named executive officers and other management employees.
Long-Term Incentive Plan
The Compensation and Human Capital Committee has provided for grants of equity-based awards to our named executive officers each year under the Long-Term Incentive Plan (“LTIP”). The Compensation and Human Capital Committee grants long-term equity-based awards with a target value, at the time the award is made, equal to a percentage of the executive officer’s base salary. Equity awards consist of time-vested grants of restricted stock units (“RSUs”) and performance-based grants of performance stock units (“PSUs”). Targeted annual incentive compensation under RSU and PSU awards as a percentage of executive officer base salaries during 2022 are as follows:

Restricted Stock Units
Under the terms of RSU awards, vesting occurs in equal installments over a four (4) year period commencing on the first anniversary of the grant date. The vesting conditions which apply to RSUs granted to the executive officers under the Company’s LTIP are designed to reward executives for continuing their employment with the Company and for implementing policies and practices which increase the value of the Company’s Common Stock over a significant period of time.
Performance Stock Units
Under the terms of PSU awards, achievement is determined based on ROIC (as defined in the award) in the year of issuance and cliff-vest three years from date of grant. The number of PSUs earned were determined during the 2022 performance period based upon the Company’s ROIC compared to the targeted ROIC. The Compensation and Human Capital Committee has selected ROIC as the performance goal used in determining payouts under PSU awards based on stockholder feedback and management’s recommendation.
2023 PROXY STATEMENT 39

COMPENSATION DISCUSSION & ANALYSIS
ROIC is an important metric to be considered when making investment decisions and a focus on ROIC will incentivize management to make careful considerations when allocating capital for equipment, innovative growth opportunities, acquisitions, and other growth initiatives. The Company is actively focusing on portfolio management and has significant capital resources to utilize in acquisitions to expand its position and shape its markets, and as a result, we believe it is challenging to forecast for periods longer than one year. The ROIC metric is a broad measurement of performance that measures profitability, cash flow generation, and asset management, which the Compensation and Human Capital Committee believes is a measure that is indicative of the effectiveness of our executive management team. The Compensation and Human Capital Committee believes that incorporating ROIC as a component of our compensation program closely aligns executive officer compensation with the interests of the Company's stockholders and the three-year vesting period incentivizes long-term value creation and promotes retention of the Company's executive management team.
Targeted ROIC is determined based upon the budget presented to the Board of Directors by the executive management team. The Compensation and Human Capital Committee approved the 2022 target of 13.5% based on the budgeted financial information presented. The threshold to earn any PSUs under the award was set at 11.5%. The maximum number of shares earned is limited to 200%, which would have required a ROIC of 15.5% or higher to achieve.
In 2022, the named executive officers earned 60.5% of the targeted PSUs awarded as the actual ROIC, as calculated in Appendix A, was below the target threshold set by the Compensation and Human Capital Committee.

Non-qualified Deferred Compensation Plan
A feature of our 2018 Equity Incentive Plan, as described above, is the 2018 Management Stock Purchase Plan (“2018 MSPP”), a non-qualified deferred compensation arrangement, which allows our executive officers to defer receipt of up to 25% of their base salary and up to 100% of their bonus (i.e., annual incentive compensation earned under the MICP). The Compensation and Human Capital Committee approved the establishment of the 2018 MSPP in order to attract, retain and motivate executive officers and a select group of management employees.
Under the 2018 MSPP, if an executive officer elects to defer receipt of a portion of his or her base salary or bonus, the dollar amount deferred is credited to a deferral account (“Deferral Account”). The base salary and bonus amounts deferred are able to achieve an investment return based on the hypothetical investment of such amounts among investment alternatives selected by the executive officer, which are substantially similar to the investment alternatives available to participants in the Company’s 401(k) Plan and include hypothetical units that track the common stock of the Company (“Deferral Units”). Each executive officer’s Deferral Account will reflect the amounts of base salary and bonus deferred by the executive officer, along with any earnings or losses that would have been realized on those amounts had they been invested in the investment alternatives chosen by the executive officer.

COMPENSATION DISCUSSION & ANALYSIS
If the executive officer chooses Deferral Units (i.e., the hypothetical units that track the Company’s common stock) as the investment alternative, the value of such officer’s Deferral Account will be determined by the number of Deferral Units credited to the Deferral Account based on the amounts of base salary and bonus deferred by the executive officer, multiplied by the value of the Company’s common stock (which is calculated in accordance with the 2018 MSPP).
The Company will match up to 40% of the base salary amount deferred by executive officers and will match 80% up to the first 50% of the bonus amount deferred and 40% of the excess bonus amount deferred. The dollar amount of the match is credited to a deferred matching account ("Matching Account") with the corresponding number of hypothetical units that track the common stock of the Company (“Matching Units”) determined in accordance with the 2018 MSPP.
Payments of the amounts in an executive officer’s Deferral Account, including the base salary and bonus deferred and the investment return that would have been realized had such amounts been invested in the investment alternatives selected by the executive officer, including the value of any Deferral Units, are made in cash to the executive officer upon a termination of employment. The value of the executive officer’s Matching Account is also paid in cash to the executive officer if the executive officer's employment is terminated after the fifth anniversary of the executive officer's vesting commencement date, or if the executive officer’s employment is terminated by the Company without "cause," by the executive officer for "good reason," or due to death or disability, before the executive officer reaches the fifth anniversary of the executive officer's vesting commencement date.
The Matching Units are forfeited if the executive officer’s employment is terminated, for any reason other than a change in control transaction, termination by the Company without cause, a resignation for good reason, and death or disability, before the executive officer reaches the fifth anniversary of the executive officer's vesting commencement date.
Prior to the deferral, the executive officer elects whether to receive payment of the amounts determined above in either (a) a lump sum, (b) five substantially equal annual installments, or (c) ten substantially equal annual installments, in each case, beginning six months after the date of termination. During the period that the installment payments are being made, the undistributed value of the executive officer’s account will earn interest at a rate equal to the average annualized rate of interest payable on ten-year US Treasury Notes plus 2%.
We believe the 2018 MSPP furthers our compensation objectives of aligning the interests of our executive officers with stockholder interests by providing the executive officers an opportunity to increase post-termination compensation as a result of increases in the value of the Company’s common stock over their careers.
The following table summarizes the amount each NEO deferred into the 2018 MSPP, the number of Deferral Units credited to their 2018 MSPP accounts, and the Matching Units credited to their 2018 MSPP accounts during 2022:

Retirement Plans
Our executive officers are entitled to participate in our Gibraltar 401(k) Plan. The Company provides a 100% match of the first three-percent of compensation deferred, and 50% match on the next two-percent of compensation deferred. Participants are fully vested in all Company matching contributions. The Company does not provide any other retirement benefits aside from the 401(k) Plan.
2023 PROXY STATEMENT 41

COMPENSATION DISCUSSION & ANALYSIS
Perquisites and Other Benefits
We annually review the perquisites that executive officers receive. The perquisites offered to our executive officers in 2022 include personal use of Company automobiles, health-care benefits, and tax planning services.
Change in Control Benefits
Our executive officers have been a key component in building our Company into the successful enterprise that it is today. We believe that it is important to protect our executive officers in the context of a change in control transaction to allow them to focus on the transaction. Further, it is our belief that the interests of our stockholders will be best served if the interests of our executive officers are aligned with the long-term success of the Company. We believe that change in control benefits should eliminate, or at least reduce, the reluctance of our executive officers to vigorously negotiate the optimal financial terms for our stockholders in the event of any potential, future change in control transactions. As a result, the Company has entered into Change in Control agreements with each of Mr. Bosway and Mr. Murphy.
Our Change in Control benefits for Mr. Bosway and Mr. Murphy provide for the protection of previously granted equity-based incentive compensation and provide for a cash payment upon a double trigger event, which would be the consummation of the Change in Control transaction and subsequent termination of employment.
For more information concerning amounts our executive officers are entitled to receive upon a termination of employment and change in control, see “Potential Payments Upon Termination or Change in Control” below.
Generally Available Benefit Programs
The executive officers also participate in the Company’s other generally available benefit plans on the same terms as other employees at the Company’s headquarters. These plans include vacation, medical and dental insurance, life insurance, a supplemental salary continuation plan providing supplemental short-term disability benefits.

Long-Term Incentive Compensation Grant Practices
Executive equity awards are approved at regularly scheduled Compensation and Human Capital Committee meetings, at the time of an executive hire or promotion or upon identification of a specific retention concern. The grant date of equity awards approved by the Compensation and Human Capital Committee is either the date of Committee approval or a date subsequent to the approval date as specified by the Compensation and Human Capital Committee. The timing of equity awards has not been coordinated with the release of material non-public information. The Compensation and Human Capital Committee’s general practice is to approve annual equity awards to executives at the Compensation and Human Capital Committee’s regularly scheduled meeting in February, when the Committee reviews the performance of the executive officers and typically determines the other components of executive compensation.
The target dollar value attributable to PSUs and RSUs, as applicable, has been translated into a target number of PSUs or RSUs, as applicable, using the closing price of the Company’s Common Stock on the date of grant (or on the immediately preceding trading day if the date of grant is not a trading day).

Clawback Policy
The Company has a Clawback Policy which requires recoupment of an executive officer’s performance-based compensation if the independent members of the Board determine that the executive engaged in fraudulent conduct that resulted in a restatement of financial statements filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
We expect to revise our Executive Clawback Policy in the next 12 months to comply with the listing rules to be adopted by NASDAQ as a result of recent SEC rulemaking.
This policy is contained in our Corporate Governance Guidelines, which are available on our website at www.gibraltar1.com.

COMPENSATION DISCUSSION & ANALYSIS

Executive Stock Ownership Guideline
In accordance with the Company's Stock Ownership Policy, the Chief Executive Officer is required to hold 500% of his or her base salary in shares of the Company's common stock or other permitted equity interest within five years following his or her appointment. Also in accordance with this policy, the Chief Operating Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Senior Vice President and Vice Presidents are required to hold 300%, 300%, 100% and 50% of their base salary, respectively, in shares of the Company's common stock or other permitted equity interest within three years following their appointment. For purposes of determining value of shares held, shares include common stock owned by the officer and those owned by spouse and/or minor children. Performance stock units and restricted stock units settled in the Company's common stock are considered equity interest for this purpose. The value of shares held is determined based on current fair market value and in the case of options, based on the difference between the exercise price and fair market value per share.
This policy is available on our website at www.gibraltar1.com.

Hedging and Pledging Company Securities Policy
Under our insider trading policy, the Company has adopted a policy that prohibits any director or executive officer from engaging in hedging transactions related to, or from pledging or creating a security interest in the Company's Common Stock that the director or officer directly or indirectly owns and controls. No director or executive officer has hedged or pledged any shares of the Company's Common Stock.
This policy is contained in our Corporate Governance Guidelines, which are available on our website at www.gibraltar1.com.

Tax Considerations
Section 162(m) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended, precludes the deductibility of a current and former named executive officer’s compensation that exceeds $1,000,000 per year. Although the Compensation and Human Capital Committee has historically attempted to structure executive compensation to preserve deductibility, it also reserves the right to provide compensation that may not be fully deductible in order to maintain flexibility in compensating named executive officers in a manner consistent with our compensation philosophy, as deemed appropriate. The Compensation and Human Capital Committee believes that stockholder interests are best served by not restricting the Compensation and Human Capital Committee’s discretion in this regard, even though such compensation may result in non-deductible compensation expenses to the Company. The Section 162(m) limitation resulted in a disallowed tax deduction for compensation expense of $3,940,608 in 2022.
Additionally, Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code generally imposes a tax on non-qualified deferred compensation arrangements which do not meet guidelines established by regulations under the Internal Revenue Code. The Company’s non-qualified deferred compensation arrangements are intended to comply with Section 409A.
If a company makes "parachute payments," Section 280G of the Code prohibits the company from deducting the portion of the parachute payments constituting "excess parachute payments" and Section 4999 of the Code imposes on a "disqualified individual" a 20% excise tax on the excess parachute payments. For this purpose, parachute payments generally are defined as payments to disqualified individuals that are contingent upon a change in control in an amount equal to or greater than three times the disqualified individual’s base amount (in general, the five-year average Form W-2 compensation). The excess parachute payments, which are nondeductible and subject to a 20% excise tax, equal the portion of the parachute payments that exceeds one time the disqualified individual’s base amount. The Change in Control Agreements and the Company’s equity incentive plans may entitle participants to receive payments in connection with a change in control that may result in excess parachute payments. The Company does not pay any tax gross-ups with respect to the excise tax imposed on any person who receives excess parachute payments.

(4)This column may vary from the amounts disclosed in the CD&A on page 37 as a result of the timing of the salary increase during 2022 for Murphy, Bolanowski, Watorek, Burns and Jensen. This column includes salary amounts deferred at the direction of the NEO to the 2018 MSPP, a non-qualified deferred compensation plan, for an equal amount in the grant of Deferral Units. The deferred salary amounts, which are equal to the grant date fair values, are as follows: Bosway $206,250; Murphy $114,416; Bolanowski $91,950; Watorek $24,841; and Jensen $37,702. Further information regarding the grant date fair value credited to the NEOs and the corresponding Deferral Units that track the common stock of the Company can be found in the Grants of Plan-Based Awards Table and Non-qualified Deferred Compensation Table.
(5)This column represents: (a) the grant date fair value of time-vested restricted stock units granted that year under the 2018 Equity Incentive Plan. Fair value was calculated using the closing price of Gibraltar Industries, Inc. common stock on the date of grant. The grant date fair value for the 2022 RSUs issued under the annual LTIP program in 2022 are as follows: Bosway $1,031,227; Murphy $206,659; Bolanowski $92,496; Watorek $37,459; Burns $206,659; and Jensen $113,834; and (b) the grant date fair value of PSUs granted during that year under the 2018 Equity Incentive Plan. For the 2022 PSUs the assumptions applicable to these valuations can be found in Note 12 of the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements - Equity-Based Compensation contained in the Gibraltar Industries, Inc. Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2022. ROIC is considered a performance condition and the grant date fair value used in this table for the 2022 PSUs corresponds with management's expectation of the probable outcome of the performance condition as of the grant date. The grant date fair value for the 2022 PSUs issued under the annual LTIP program in 2022 are as follows: Bosway $1,856,21; Murphy $459,284; Bolanowski $148,003; Watorek $149,977; Burns $459,284: and Jensen $265,691. The maximum grant date fair value for the 2022 PSUs are as follows: Bosway $3,712,436; Murphy $918,568; Bolanowski $296,006; Watorek, $299,954; Burns, $918,568; and Jensen $531,382. The actual number of units earned under 2022 PSUs differed based on the performance of the Company as measured by its actual 2022 ROIC compared to targeted ROIC. Further information regarding these awards can be found above in the CD&A on pages 40 and 41. As a result, the actual compensation that will be earned under these PSU awards may vary significantly from the grant date fair value disclosed.
