Private Companies

We are trusted compensation advisors to private companies, from smaller family-owned companies to larger ones. We are familiar with the unique challenges of designing compensation plans for private companies, such as wanting to retain ownership control while creating a succession plan and an ownership culture. We can help you address issues such as appropriate sharing ratios, liquidity provisions, valuation methodologies, communication of sensitive financial information, and when to use real or phantom equity. We also understand that private company compensation data is hard to come by, and we fill this gap by conducting our own independent research in conjunction with WorldatWork.
