Farient Advisors merges with Remuneration Associates (Rem.n)

News from our Team in London

You may have seen that on March 8th we combined our operations with Farient Advisors /GECN Group (‘Farient’), the leading independent executive compensation and corporate governance consultancy. The combination is already working well, and Rem.n’s partners Simon Patterson and Stephen Cahill have joined Farient’s senior leadership team.

Robin Ferracone is the Founder and CEO, Farient Advisors/GECN Group. She has known Stephen and I for a long time. Robin is a friend and a professional of the very highest order. Farient has a superb reputation and is renowned for its commitment to rigorous and innovative analysis and solutions. Robin and Simon were partners from 1994 through 2004, at SCA Consulting and Mercer, Robin and Stephen were partners at Mercer. It is great to be working together again.

This merger strengthens Farient's corporate governance and compensation advisory services to public and private company boards. It also provides a market presence in the U.K. where differing governance rules and norms apply.

We are working through a comprehensive integration plan currently.
