He has more than 13 years of experience advising boards and management in all areas of executive and director compensation, across a wide range of public and private companies, with a focus on the financial services, high-tech, insurance, payment processing, manufacturing and luxury retail industries.

Matt has been featured by the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD) as “a leading mind in compensation,” having extensive experience establishing a robust CEO performance assessment framework – with board and CEO buy-in – and linking it to annual compensation decisions, providing support with setting shareholder-focused performance targets, customizing incentive programs to shifting strategic priorities, shareholder and proxy advisory firm engagement, and addressing Say on Pay challenges. He has worked with a number of clients to craft best in class CD&A’s and has supported several Fed submissions from banking organizations on their pay programs, including the development of dynamic risk/pay models.

Matt leads CAP’s methodology committee, regularly authors CAP client alerts, and has been quoted by or written for numerous publications; e.g., Agenda, Directorship and The Wall Street Journal. He has also co-authored several comment letters to the SEC and ISS on behalf of CAP, as well as the annual NACD Director Compensation Report, and has also been a speaker at a number of compensation and regulatory-focused events sponsored by Equilar, the Knowledge Congress, the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD), and the National Association of Stock Plan Professionals (NASPP).
