Key Employee Planning

Key employee incentive plans are often used to tie key employees to a firm and to provide incentive to maximize profit and growth. These plans fall into two broad categories:
  • Equity-based Plans
  • Non-qualified Deferred Compensation Plans
As current owners plan their ownership or management transition, it is important to have an effective strategy for retaining key employees. This requires a host of critical decisions, including the development of compensation plans, which serve to incentivize and increase the probability of employee retention.

For many years we have helped clients design and implement synthetic and actual equity plans that have proven effective through all parts of the business cycle. Our experience has allowed us to define a proprietary and unconflicted process centered on the specific objectives of each business owner.
