Formerly Pearl Meyer UK
Pearl Meyer agreed to divest its London operations on June 17th, 2022. Simon Patterson (Managing Director) and his team now own Remuneration Associates Ltd. – an independent consulting firm working with clients around the world, which builds upon the legacy of the London operation.
Pearl Meyer’s decision was a result of their focus on further developing their consulting business in North America.
Pearl Meyer acquired Patterson Associates in 2012 to expand its geographic footprint and to support its growth strategy. Over the course of the last 10 years Simon and his team helped Pearl Meyer establish a global presence and helped win key engagements, including some of the world’s largest companies.
Remuneration Associates (“Rem.n”) continues with the same core team, although this is now expanding, continues its current content strategy (such as research and publication of the UK CEO Value Index) and is enhancing both its data capability (relationships with eReward and Main Data), its market reach and its product offering (with several global joint ventures to sell and deliver people ‘solutions’ to a wider audience in more companies).
Rem.n is now recruiting new staff, installing replacement IT systems and migrating to a new marketing strategy. Former Pearl Meyer colleagues have been hugely supportive during this transition, reflective of the amiable nature of our parting ways.
We thank Simon and his team for their contributions at Pearl Meyer. They are friends of our firm, and we look forward to a strong and continuing relationship which we anticipate will include being one of [their] many lead referral sources”Pearl Meyer – June 17 2022
You have choices
but Rem.n is a new, serious, highly experienced service offering:
What makes us different is our combination of experience, independence and our focus on practical, timely outcomes.
- Our experience is second to none
- Our clients include some of the most demanding as well as some of the fastest growing clients in the world
- We are independent: we don’t follow the herd
- Our ownership structure is quite unique, and our success is not based upon links to a tax, legal, accounting or actuarial division.
- We are not a cog in a large corporate machine.
- We start from what’s needed, not what’s been done before.
- We give frank and honest advice, tackling sometimes sensitive conversations that can arise when dealing with Board level pay
Simon talks about the company, our typical clients and interactions and how we can help
Describing a typical client
"We're often asked, what is a typical client?" Here, we provide some sense of the clients who have approached us in the past...
What does a typical engagement look like? Problems will typically be related to Incentive Compensation or Remuneration, in any broad sense. Our clients range from small to large, private to public. Our clients are often operating internationally. Here, we describe the process of engaging with you, our client: how do we start, what happens next?
What problems do we solve
The symptoms which our clients often have, when they approach us, fall into five categories:
1. You cannot recruit the talent you need
3. Alignment between management's incentives and the shareholder's objectives
5. Technical support
Do we make a difference?
The subject of executive pay (and how it is designed) is dry. But, designing incentives to motivate the right behaviours can make a huge difference to you, to society, to the planet.
