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

        Amendments to Employment Agreements On December 20, 2007, the Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of Premiere Global Services, Inc. (the “Company”) approved amendments to the employment agreements or arrangements with each of the Company’s named executive officers, Boland T. Jones, Chief Executive Officer of the Company; Theodore P. Schrafft, President of the Company; T. Lee Provow, President, Global Operations of the Company; and Michael E. Havener, Chief Financial Officer of the Company, for the purpose of bringing such agreements or arrangements into documentary compliance with Section 409A of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (“Section 409A”). The Section 409A amendments relate to the timing of severance payments before and after a “change in control” of the Company such that any severance payable before and after a “change in control” will be paid in a lump sum.

        In addition, the Compensation Committee approved changes to Mr. Havener’s employment arrangement to (i) conform the definition of a “change in control” therein to the definition of “change in control” in the Company’s compensation arrangements with other officers and employees, and (ii) provide for a severance payment equal to 100% of his annual base salary in effect on the date of termination if he is terminated without “cause” before or after a “change in control” of the Company (as such terms are defined in his agreement). In addition, the Compensation Committee approved an increase in Mr. Havener’s annual base salary from $200,000 to $250,000 for 2008 and a grant to Mr. Havener on December 31, 2007 of 60,000 shares of restricted stock. The restricted stock will vest as to 10,000; 20,000; and 30,000 shares on the first, second and third anniversaries of his grant date, respectively, provided that he is still employed by the Company or any of its affiliates on such dates. In the event of a termination of Mr. Havener’s employment by reason of his death or disability or upon a change in control of the Company, the vesting of such restricted stock will accelerate in full. In the event of a termination of Mr. Havener’s employment without “cause,” the vesting of such restricted stock will accelerate with respect to the tranche next scheduled to vest.

        Copies of the amendments to the employment agreements or arrangements with each of the named executive officers and the restricted stock agreement for Mr. Havener are included as Exhibits 10.1 through 10.5, respectively, to this current report.
