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

On June 2, 2014, the Board of Directors of Old National Bancorp (the "Company") elected Jerome "Jerry" F. Henry, Jr. to serve as a director for a term expiring at the 2015 annual meeting of shareholders. Mr. Henry has not yet been assigned to any Board committees. Mr. Henry has no relationships or transactions with the Company which are required to be disclosed pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.

Mr. Henry will be compensated for his service on the Board of Directors of the Company and any committee of the Board on which he serves in accordance with the Company's compensation arrangements for all outside directors. Outside directors of the Company are paid an annual retainer of $70,000 for serving as directors. Of this amount, directors receive $35,000 in cash and $35,000 in the form of Company stock. The stock retainer is paid in two equal installments in May and November. Additional committee chair and committee membership retainers are paid as follows: Audit Committee Chair $12,000, Audit Committee Member $6,000, Compensation and Management Development Committee Chair $10,000, Compensation and Management Development Committee Member $5,000, Other Committee Chair $8,000, and Other Committee Member $4,000. Committee fees and the cash retainer are paid quarterly in the month following the end of the quarter, except fees for the last quarter of the year, which are paid in December.

In addition, Mr. Henry will be eligible to participate in a nonqualified deferred compensation plan, known as the "Directors Deferred Compensation Plan," for the Company's non-employee directors. A director may defer 25%, 50%, 75%, or 100% of his cash compensation pursuant to this plan. The Company credits a director's plan account with earnings based on the hypothetical earnings of an investment fund consisting of Company stock, the return on a recognized market index selected by the Compensation and Management Development Committee of the Board, or a combination of the two, as elected by the director.
