Senior Advisors are not full-time employees of Appian and the terms of their engagement as Senior Advisors permit them to, and it is expected they will, have other industry roles and businesses. To the extent an Appian-controlled investment vehicle engages a Senior Advisor or a company with which such Senior Advisor is affiliated with or employed by for services to such vehicle, the relevant vehicle will bear the fees and costs of such services.
