PACIFIC WEBWORKS INC FILES (8-K) Disclosing Change in Directors or Principal Officers, Financial Statements and Exhibits

(Edgar Glimpses Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Item 5.02 Departure of Directors or Certain Officers; Election of Directors; Appointment of Certain Officers; Complimentary Arrangements of Certain Officers Effective May 20, 2011, Christian R. Larsen resigned his positions as President and Secretary of Pacific WebWorks, Inc. ("the Company") to pursue other opportunities and challenges. Mr. Larsen will, however, continue to serve on the Company's board of directors ("Board").

In accordance with our bylaws, on May 18, 2011, the Board appointed K. Lance Bell to fill the director vacancy on our Board and to serve until our next annual meeting or until he is succeeded by a qualified director. The Board also appointed Lance as President, Secretary and Chief Financial Officer of the Company. Lance is 37 years old and is the son of Kenneth W. Bell, our Chief Executive Officer.

Lance earned an MBA from Goizueta Business School at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. He also has over 13 years of experience in the IT services industry, including domestic and international architecture and operations management. From 2001 to 2011 Lance was employed by Cedarcrestone, Inc., a consulting and managed services firm with approximately 600 employees. He started with that company as a Technical Consultant and advanced to Manager of Application Development. He then progressed to Director of Application Management in 2006 and then Sr. Director of Information Technology in 2010. The Board believes Lance's extensive contacts, domestic and international experience, management and business expertise will be a valuable component to our future success.

Lance started employment with Pacific WebWorks on January 1, 2011 to initially serve as Executive Vice President of Finance and Administration. His employment agreement provides for a term starting on January 1, 2011 and terminating on December 31, 2012. The agreement provides for a salary of $190,000 a year, with paid vacation time and benefits. The compensation amount is subject to annual increases starting December 31, 2011 and the agreement provides for annual incentive bonuses to be determined by the Board. Lance may be terminated only for cause and he is obligated to protect the proprietary information of the Company for a period of two years after termination of his employment.

In the event of a change in control (as defined in the agreement) that results in Lance's resignation or discharge within the first year of employment, he is entitled to an amount equal to 1.5 times his salary. After the first year, he is entitled to an amount equal to 3 times the average of the sum of the amounts paid for salary, bonus, and profit sharing for the prior three fiscal years, or such shorter time period, immediately preceding the date of the change in control. In addition, Lance has the right to request that the Company register Company shares owned by him when, and if, a registration statement is filed by the Company.
