Executive Compensation

We develop plans to actualize your business and people strategies.

Chartwell partners with clients to develop a clearly articulated compensation philosophy that aligns with their ownership philosophy. We recognize that annual incentives and long-term incentive plans (LTIPs) must bridge the two philosophies and drive your overall strategic plan.


The foundation of our compensation consulting involves a sophisticated approach to market benchmarking to ensure base pay, annual bonus, and LTIPs are appropriate given your corporate goals. We have the ability to:

  • Utilize pay data relevant to privately-held companies
  • Assess base pay, bonus, and LTIP values and the mix of these pay components

Bonus Design

We specialize in developing bonus designs that:

  • Promote line of sight between efforts and outcomes
  • Support attainment of annual operating plan
  • Reinforce company culture

LTIP Design

In situations where long-term incentive plans are appropriate tools to attract, retain, and motivate key leaders, these plans are developed to best support your ownership philosophy and strategic plan. We have significant experience with:

  • Tailoring LTIP designs that reflect stakeholder priorities
  • Developing iterative financial analyses to ensure LTIP supports business and people strategies
  • Consulting on key LTIP issues (eligibility, vesting, distributions, IRC §409A, etc.)
