Commitment to Clients

My clients want to ensure that their compensation programs provide for fair and competitive pay opportunities that are appropriately aligned with key business objectives, performance outcomes, and sound corporate governance practices. My job as a trusted advisor to compensation committees and management teams is to help ensure these objectives are achieved by providing effective program designs and advice that are relevant to the applicable client, supported by analytics, and meet the needs of all stakeholders.


Bill Reilly is a managing director at Pearl Meyer. He is a senior advisor to compensation committees and executives on all aspects of executive and non-employee director compensation and advises clients on issues such as compensation philosophy, market pay assessments, pay and performance alignment, short-term and long-term incentive plan design, employment contracts and severance/CIC arrangements, competitive trends, and regulatory developments.

Prior to joining Pearl Meyer in 2011, Bill was a consultant for 18 years with Mercer, most recently as a principal in executive compensation.

Bill received an MBA from Hofstra University and a BA from Boston College.
