What Are People Saying?

Nancy is an amazing and uniquely talented HR professional. With a breadth of experience leading compensation, benefits and HRIS teams she is a tremendous strategic thought partner. At the same time, Nancy is pragmatic and business focused in assessing needs and developing practical solutions to immediate business challenges. She helped me create and execute a comprehensive compensation review process grounded in market reference data, build meaningful executive level compensation comparisons, and align Board level support for rigorous disciplines across a complex set of businesses. Nancy is hands-on; she doesn’t just offer ideas… she builds solutions. Having worked with Nancy at two companies over a 5 year span, I will absolutely work with her again and would recommend her as one of the top consultants in compensation and benefits.

Mark Davidson

Nancy is a trusted and pragmatic advisor to HR leaders, business leaders and boards. Her finance education and depth of experience coupled with her successful in-house compensation and benefit roles make her well-suited to be your consultant. She learns her client’s business quickly, enabling her to bring innovative and targeted compensation solutions that drive business results and a motivated workforce. Her partnership skills are excellent.

Jerry Dark
Chief Human Resources Officer, KCG Holdings

Nancy thinks strategically about how to construct compensation and benefit plans that drive both client objectives and employee engagement. She also has the right practical, hands-on experience to help guide her clients on how to implement plans smoothly and effectively. While at my last company, I worked closely with Nancy on many complicated compensation and benefits plans from design to implementation. I strongly recommend hiring her as your consultant.

Nancy is an outstanding compensation partner who is well versed in all things compensation. She brought a tremendous wealth of knowledge as it relates to compensation in the technology industry. She was spot on with her analysis and recommendations. I would work with Nancy again in a heartbeat.

Jessica Duncan
Senior Compensation Consultant, T-Mobile

Our partnership with Nancy and her team was instrumental in overhauling compensation structures under a short timeline.  With my team already at full capacity, augmenting with Compass Total Rewards was a huge benefit.  I really appreciated Nancy staying on top of deliverables through her project management skills and strong sense of ownership.  The overall process was well thought out, and the Compass team was able to adapt to our unique needs and way of doing business.

Forrest Whyte
Sr Director, Total Rewards, Nutanix

While creating the first global compensation strategy at my last emerging growth IoT company, Nancy and her team at Compass Total Rewards were referred to me by a Fortune 50 tech executive.  Her advice and approach were instrumental in allowing me to encompass the values and culture of the company, offer an attractive yet and budget-friendly Total Rewards strategy, set a foundation for scale — while easily earning CEO and BOD approval.  She was a trusted advisor in every sense. From definition of scope, to pricing, to project management, to materials prep and ultimate delivery, Nancy and team proved to be the most effective consulting team I’ve engaged.
