Commitment to Clients

I help my clients assess, design, implement, and communicate compensation programs that align with and support their organization’s long-term business strategy and goals. My blend of consulting and corporate experience enables me to view the consulting process from both consultant and client perspectives. I strive not only to develop high-quality tailored solutions, but also to be a strong business partner—easily accessible, regularly communicating, and providing work products on time and on budget. Customer satisfaction is my highest priority.


Ed Steinhoff is a managing director and consulting team leader at Pearl Meyer.
