Item 5.02  Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors;  Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.
On January 30, 2013, the Board of Directors of Customers Bancorp, Inc. (the “Company”) re-appointed Mr. Bhanu Choudhrie as a director of the Company, effective immediately.  As previously disclosed, Mr. Choudhrie, who was an original director of the Company, stepped down as a director in October 2011 pending notification of completion of the Federal Reserve Bank’s standard name check on him related to his U.K. citizenship.  The Company has received notification of the completion of such name check, and the Board of Directors has deemed it in the Company’s best interest to re-appoint Mr. Choudhrie to his previously held directorship.  At this time, committee assignments for Mr. Choudhrie have not been determined.  As of December 31, 2012, Mr. Choudhrie held an indirect beneficial ownership interest in 5% of the Company’s outstanding voting common stock through his company, Lewisberg LLC.
Other than as described above, there are no arrangements or understandings between Mr. Choudhrie and any other persons pursuant to which he was selected as a director, no family relationships between Mr. Choudhrie and any director or executive officer of the Company, and Mr. Choudhrie has no direct or indirect material interest in any transaction required to be disclosed pursuant to Item 404(a) of Regulation S-K.
