Who We Are
Independent Consultants To Compensation Committees
Lyons, Benenson & Company Inc. (LB&Co.) was formed in 1988 to succeed the practices of the former firms of its founding partners. LB&Co.'s practice today is largely in the areas of executive compensation, corporate governance, human resources management and organization planning. Our work is designed to assist clients in achieving and sustaining significant improvements in performance through enhancing their ability to attract, retain, motivate and reward the executives and professionals who are needed to develop and execute strategic and operational plans and achieve exemplary results.
LB&Co.'s consulting in executive compensation and governance is typically undertaken on behalf of each client's board of directors, its compensation committee or its nominating/governance committee. In order to maintain the firm's standing as truly independent consultants, once the firm is engaged to work on compensation and governance matters for a client, LB&Co. does not conduct other consulting assignments for that client without authorization by the board of directors or the compensation committee, thus effectively eliminating any potential conflicts of interest. While engaged by boards and compensation committees, LB&Co. works collaboratively with management to ensure a commonality of purpose and direction on all projects.
