Executive Compensation is one of the "hottest" topics facing publicly traded U.S. companies and their Boards. It is dynamic & highly complex. As accounting rules, labor legislation, the global economy & competitive practices evolve, it is beneficial for companies to have an independent advisor who is readily accessible and one they can trust.
