Commitment to Clients

My clients are united in their mission to use compensation design to support key strategic priorities. My clients recognize and understand that doing what everyone else is doing has never been—and never will be—an effective pay strategy. Ultimately, I believe the best compensation programs are those that align pay with performance, balance simplicity with accuracy, are quantitatively driven, incorporate decisive and seasoned business judgment, and are grounded in a company’s key business issues.

Brett works with public and private companies across many industries, including financial and diversified services, technology, and manufacturing.
