We are a consulting firm. We provide executive and director remuneration, performance management, governance, and employee equity data and solutions that contribute to improved total shareholder return.
We are independent. We do not provide services other than executive and board remuneration, board evaluation and renewal, director evaluation, and board governance consulting. We are not a broad based firm offering services that could be separately purchased by management in excess of the fees we earn from boards. Therefore the scope for potential conflicts of interest is minimised.
Guerdon Associates brings together behavioural, financial and legal disciplines, comprehensive data and research, a measurement framework, and a consulting network to achieve this regionally, nationally and globally.
Consulting client companies tend to be larger listed companies. However, we also work for private corporations, rapidly growing smaller public companies, and companies preparing for the transition from private to public and sometimes back again. Primary contacts within client companies are board chairmen, chairmen of board remuneration committees, CFOs, human resources EVPs, remuneration/compensation managers, company secretaries and corporate counsel.
Information services clients include companies, their advisers, investors, researchers, government agencies and not for profit organisations.
Our focus is to enhance organisation performance through the better application of human capital and the management of human capital risk. We do this with the instruments of reward, performance measurement and performance management. We view organisations as complex but understandable human and economic systems. So while we may apply specialist expertise to only parts of the system, we assess the impact that changes may have on the entire system and its outputs.
While we have a strength in analysis and measurement, we are also engaged in stakeholder engagement. We maximise the likelihood of success by testing analyses and alternatives with the board remuneration committee, management, proxy firms and major investors.
Our work is based on proven research. This research is sourced from within Guerdon Associates' own work, from the public domain, or from co-operative ventures Guerdon Associates has established with universities and other dedicated research bodies.
Team members have decades of experience, and have consulted to companies around the world on executive and director remuneration matters. Our main consulting offices are located in Melbourne and Sydney, Australia, with data support personnel in Chennai, India, and technology support personnel in San Francisco, USA. With our international experience, and through associates in the major independent firms around the world, we can provide internationally workable solutions when and if required.
