Based on CAP’s recent survey, Partners Bertha Masuda and Sue Schroeder conclude that private companies have taken swift actions to manage the effects of COVID-19 with responses ranging from reducing executive compensation to laying off employees.

CAP Principal Bonnie Schindler provides an overview of the 2019 Private Company Board Compensation and Governance Survey, and discusses how to use the survey data to design a competitive and effective board pay program.

CAP’s 2019 Private Company Board Compensation and Governance survey of more than 600 private companies found that while the median annual retainer for board service is $30,000, companies in the 90th percentile pay $90,000; and those in the 10th percentile pay $10,000.
