The staffing model at Hugessen Consulting is skewed towards senior professionals with board-level presence and experience who are able to personally guide a compensation committee and top-management team through complex, and often difficult, executive compensation decisions. As a small entrepreneurial firm, all members of the Hugessen team play a key role in contributing to the growth of the practice and in building the firm.
There are four levels of professionals in the firm:
Partners have overall responsibility for a portfolio of on-going client relationships.
Partners are individuals who have demonstrated to the client community that they play a leadership role in the industry and our firm. They are accountable for acquiring clients, managing client relationships, leading teams and building reputation and intellectual capital. Partners must speak the language of the board and top management, exhibit strong business savvy, and have client management skills supported by exceptional analytical skills.
Principals are responsible for the day-to-day management of specific projects and/or client relationships.
A typical Hugessen Principal will have a background in executive compensation, accounting, law, investment or finance as well as 7-10 years of relevant experience. These are client facing roles and these professionals have the ability to take a project from beginning to end. However they may not have the relationships and experience to create the client relationship and scope the project. Also, they would attend, but not necessarily lead, major compensation committee meetings and project updates.
Associates are responsible for specific pieces of work as part of larger projects.
A typical Hugessen Associate will have a background in compensation, accounting, law or finance as well as 4-7 years of business experience. They will work on projects under the direction of a Principal or Partner.
Analysts are responsible for working closely with the associates and principals on a variety of client assignments.
A Hugessen analyst is typically a recent graduate from an undergraduate program in commerce, finance, engineering, economics, accounting, law or a similarly analytically-oriented program.
