Item 5.02. Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
Cutera, Inc. (the “Company”) has appointed David Gollnick, a member of the Company’s Board of Directors and a founder, to serve as Vice President of North American Sales of the Company for the initial duration through July 26, 2014.
Mr. Gollnick’s base salary for this period will be $222,500 and he will not be entitled to receive any board compensation during the period of his employment.  Mr. Gollnick will be eligible to receive quarterly cash bonus payments equal to the year-over-year actual North American revenue growth rate for the quarters ended March 31, 2014, June 30, 2014 and September 30, 2014, multiplied by the prorated base compensation earned for the applicable quarter based on a six month compensation of $200,000.  Upon the approval of the Company’s Board of Directors, Mr. Gollnick will be granted restricted stock units represented by the quotient of $60,000 divided by the closing market price of the Company’s common stock on the date of the Company’s 2014 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.  These restricted stock units will vest in their entirety on the one year anniversary of the grant date and none units will vest until such time.  We expect Mr. Gollnick will continue to serve on the Company’s Board of Directors during his period of employment.
Our Audit Committee also ratified a payment of $3,840 for consulting services rendered by Mr. Gollnick to the sales and marketing organization during the month of January 2014.

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, thereunto duly authorized.
