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

On March 25, 2015, the board of directors of CDW Corporation (the "Company") expanded the size of the Company's board of directors from ten to eleven members and appointed James A. Bell as a Class II director. As a Class II director, Mr. Bell will stand for re-election when his initial term expires at the Company's annual meeting of stockholders on May 13, 2015. The Company's board of directors expects to appoint Mr. Bell to serve on the nominating and corporate governance committee and the audit committee later this year.

Consistent with the Company's non-employee director compensation policy, Mr. Bell will receive an annual cash retainer of $75,000 paid quarterly in arrears and an annual equity grant of restricted stock units in an amount equal to $125,000 subject to a one-year time-based vesting schedule. Mr. Bell's annual cash retainer and annual equity grant will be prorated in 2015 based upon board service. In connection with his appointment, Mr. Bell and the Company will enter into the Company's standard indemnification agreement, the form of which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission as Exhibit 10.32 with the Company's Amendment No. 2 to Form S-1 filed on June 14, 2013 (Reg. No. 333-187472).

There are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Bell and any other person pursuant to which Mr. Bell was appointed as a director, and there are no transactions between Mr. Bell and the Company that would be required to be reported under Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.

A copy of the press release announcing the appointment of Mr. Bell is attached hereto as Exhibit 99.1 and is incorporated by reference herein.
