SUPPORTING THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS AGENDA

Executive Compensation

It's critical for executive compensation programs to drive the desired performance and behaviors to achieve your strategy.  It's also important for shareholders to support your program.  For new compensation committee members or CHRO's where in-house expertise isn't available, Todd can provide a comprehensive review of the executive compensation program with recommendations for action. Todd played an integral role in aligning the executive compensation program at Verifone with it's transformation strategy, while moving shareholder "say on pay" support from 45% to 92%. Todd recently delivered a comprehensive framework to establish an executive compensation program at a small bio-tech company.    


Talent

Boards vary in their focus on talent beyond the CEO.  It's important for boards to understand a broader set of leadership talent, assist in their development, and be prepared for un-planned changes.  Todd assisted the Compensation Committee of the Verifone board as they expanded their charter to include oversight of these factors, and delivered their first c-team succession plan.  Todd can assist you in the early stages of thinking through the goals and framework, as well as work with you and the board to implement new talent management initiatives.

Culture

Several well-known situations with U.S. financial services and technology companies have elevated the importance to boards of understanding the culture of the organization.  Todd can help you determine how to best support your board with these challenges, combining his perspective on organization culture with more typical risk management approaches.
