Board Services

Mastering the establishment, remuneration and functioning of supervisory bodies

Corporate governance is changing with the emergence of new quality standards for advisory, supervisory and executive boards. The selection and functioning of supervisory boards sets the pace, while greater public awareness demands the professionalizing of monitoring operations and consulting activities by advisory and supervisory boards.

The selection of suitable board candidates for proposal to the General Meeting requires a great deal of sensitivity and professionalism. We support you in meeting the diversity-related challenges of succession planning by preparing qualification profiles specifically tailored to your company’s unique control environment. To portray the work of the supervisory board within an appropriate compensation structure, we prepare individual analyses and expert benchmarking reports.

As an independent compensation specialist, we also advise you regarding adjustment and restructuring in accordance with legal requirements and corporate governance codes. Our consultation services range from expert benchmarking reports for CEO, supervisory board and advisory board compensation to the design of compensation systems for the various stages of a career. Compensation tools such as our on-line compensation database, the Board Remuneration Analyzer – a tool for assessing board compensation – or the compensation portal for querying market data and board research studies, offer your organization additional benefits.

Our corporate governance experts support and advise you in the formation of advisory groups and the search for suitable members of your supervisory board. We advise you on all questions surrounding the compensation of directorates, boards and management.

While owners of medium-sized family companies have flexibility in designing their advisory bodies, these efforts must be tailored for long-term success to meet business challenges and match the specific shareholder-family structure. With the advantage of wide-ranging experience over many years, our team can facilitate optimal establishment and compensation.
