Trusted Experts. Independent. Forward-thinking.

Johnson Associates is a leading independent compensation consulting firm that specializes in strategic advice, innovative design and a full range of comprehensive solutions to help financial services firms achieve their business and leadership goals.

OUR EXPERTISE We have unrivaled expertise advising both management teams and corporate boards in the financial services space across 25+ years of market cycles.  We are engaged to provide custom solutions and a forward thinking market perspective, not cookie-cutter checklists.  In addition to the full range of traditional services, such as annual and long-term design and market assessments, we have special experience advising on transactions and complex situations that bring unique compensation challenges.  Often we are the ones brought in to assist with the difficult questions that go beyond a purely numerical response. We work hard to recommend workable solutions that take into account a client’s specific culture, success factors and leadership objectives.

OUR INDEPENDENCE.  Founded over 25 years ago and privately owned, our exclusive focus is on providing compensation consulting services.  In addition to being able to give truly unconflicted advice, we pride ourselves on our independent and creative thinking.  We have been rewarded with the privilege of being trusted by some of the world’s leading financial institutions with their compensation issues.

OUR PEOPLE We have high caliber consultants with exceptional qualifications and experience with high level engagement across the vast universe of financial services.  We are true partners and our first priority is to understand the business and leadership challenges behind every assignment, in addition to market trends, talent management, corporate governance, and regulatory considerations.

The success of our Firm is due to the numerous long-term relationships we have established with a stellar roster of clients over the past 25+ years in business. Many of our clients tell us that our insights, candor and high level of engagement is exactly what they look for in a strategic partner. This is the essence of the Johnson Associates approach to doing business.
