Commitment to Clients

Every day, business moves in a more rapid and dynamic fashion and so it is important that I move just as quickly, not just in terms of responsiveness, but also in anticipating how changing business and talent strategies impact compensation design and decisions. It is my goal to provide thoughtful advice and an informed point of view covering the various matters compensation committees and management teams deal with each year.


Terry Newth is a managing director and head of our life sciences practice at Pearl Meyer. He consults on the design, development, and assessment of executive compensation programs that support each organization’s business objectives, long term business strategy, and organizational culture. His clients range from private venture-backed to large multinational life science companies. Terry’s areas of expertise include pay strategy and philosophy development, market-based pay studies, incentive plan design, severance and CIC arrangements, outside director pay, transaction-related compensation, CD&A and supporting table disclosures, corporate governance, and share plan authorizations.

Before joining Pearl Meyer, Terry was a senior consultant in the executive compensation practice of Towers Watson. He also had responsibility for the analysis, development, and implementation of global compensation programs at American Power Conversion and at Thomson Financial.

Terry holds a BS from Providence College and a MS in labor relations/human resources from the University of Rhode Island.
