#MeToo Collides with Executive Pay: Trends in Interim Role Compensation
Upon abrupt executive departures, in particular at the CEO level, companies will turn to a board member, a senior executive, or an executive leadership group to fill the role before a formal successor is named. In these scenarios, compensation committees must quickly make adjustments to compensation plans to account for the change in role and responsibilities. This panel will discuss trends in interim role executive pay, critical considerations to keep in mind through the process, and setting incentives to meet expected outcomes during a period of transition.
1:10 p.m. – 2:10 p.m.
Managing Risk in Your Incentive Plans
The level of scrutiny on incentive-based compensation, performance measures, and pay out curves has never been higher. Metric evaluation and stress testing are critical aspects of building an effective incentive plan. In this discussion, the panel will offer a holistic framework and best practices for metric selection, stress testing, and how to build a risk-minded culture.
