A Leading, Independent Consulting Firm
Ways we stand out
We take off where other firms finish.
“Standard” analyses are the start of our client collaboration, not the endpoint.
We combine wisdom, deep experience, and insightful analytics to broaden collective thinking and consider alternatives—not a ‘middle-of-the-road’ approach.
Clients choose us for our partnership, thorough thinking, and creative solutions.
We ensure the right questions are asked, at the right times, in the right ways.
We bring candor, EQ, and an independent viewpoint.
We raise hard questions, anticipate what’s next, and ensure alternatives are fully vetted.
We bring strong opinions but recognize there’s often more than one right answer.
We’re shaping the direction of the executive compensation field.
We conduct leading research in core and emerging topics (e.g., shareholder voting & Say on Pay, performance metrics & measurement, the intersection of ESG, HCM & compensation).
Our relationships with other advisors allow us to understand the forefront of governance and technical compensation.
Our culture supports our clients and promotes collaboration.
Our firm initiatives support diversity, inclusion, and community involvement.
We collectively synthesize trends and share solutions to our clients’ most pressing challenges.
Each client accesses our best resources and the breadth of our firm’s experiences and networks.
