Commitment to Clients

As a trusted advisor to both boards and management teams, my goal is to ensure that the executive compensation programs I design are business-focused and aligned with your current strategy. I am a firm believer in best fit over best practice, as each company is unique and their compensation plans should be tailored to their needs and not just be following the fad du jour. I am also passionate about helping family and privately held businesses to use compensation as a competitive tool to attract, retain, and motivate their key talent.


Dan Moynihan is a managing director with Pearl Meyer. He is focused on all areas of pay including executive compensation, broad-based rewards, incentive design, and sales compensation development. Dan works to clarify client compensation and human resource objectives to develop programs that maximize their resources and existing infrastructure. Dan has a passion for helping emerging and growth companies (public and private) with the design and development of executive compensation programs to help drive attraction, motivation, and retention of key personnel. Dan advises boards and executive management at a number of public and privately held companies in global industrial, retail, consumer products, and financial services organizations. He also works closely with private equity firms and their portfolio companies on pre- and post-IPO related issues.

Prior to joining Pearl Meyer, Dan was a partner at a global HR consultancy for 13 years, and prior to that he was a partner in a regional compensation boutique focused on emerging and growth businesses.

Dan is a Certified Executive Compensation Professional and holds an MBA from Montclair State University, as well as a BA from Ursinus College. 

At Pearl Meyer, we work with boards and organizations to design and implement compensation and leadership strategies that build great management teams.
