Senior Management Compensation
The Ross Companies works closely with senior management of private companies to drive desired performance by developing and implementing compensation programs to attract, retain, and reward outstanding executives.


Our goal is to achieve the proper balance between executive compensation and ownership interests. We focus on key identifiable factors which drive performance within the unique culture of each client.

Our Guiding Principles
  • Well designed executive compensation programs reward key contributors for the long term success of the enterprise
  • Effective executive compensation program requires a competitive base salary
  • The basis for additional annual and long term compensation should be well-thought out performance criteria
  • Companies should have appropriate long term compensation programs for executive engagement and retention purposes
  • Performance-based equity compensation awards (using options or grants) are better aligned with shareholder interests than non-performance based awards
  • Long term compensation programs are appropriately communicated and monitored to deliver the expected value to shareholders
  • Supplemental Retirement Plans are an appropriate solution for executives hired in mid-career when other opportunities do not exist to replace lost retirement benefits
  • Windfall benefits have no place in executive compensation programs and usually reflect poor plan design, weak or ineffective governances and waste of limited financial resources
  • Employment agreements benefit both the executive and the employer
We use passive (database) and direct surveys as well as executive interviews to gather specific information about each client and their peer companies. We use this information to assist in the conceptual approach and detailed design of new or replacement compensation programs for the client’s executive team.
