Executive Compensation Consultants Serving Public and Private Companies Worldwide.

Our Business Philosophy

Long before all of the scrutiny on executive pay, Farient was laser focused on pay and performance alignment. In fact, we still are.

Our  philosophy is plain and simple: executive compensation should be a derivative of corporate strategy and a powerful driver of shareholder value. We also believe that performance should be given as much attention as pay levels in designing executive pay programs. Farient has considerable expertise in advising on the pay and performance side of the equation.  This includes selecting and defining performance measures that link to value, developing goal-setting processes, and aligning performance and pay.

Farient was built “from the ground up” to provide independent advice to Compensation Committees on an ongoing basis. We help committees design and deliver performance aligned executive pay programs and outcomes, and apply appropriate governance processes that are highly defensible and reflect best practice.
