Center On Executive Compensation

Executive Compensation Honors Program

Generously hosted by: American Express Corporation, 200 Vesey Street, New York City, NY 10285

Thank you for your engagement in our inaugural Executive Compensation Honors program! We hope you found the program and networking opportunities as valuable as we did. As thought leaders and top practitioners in the rewards profession, your insight on challenging assumptions, reimagining the future, and exploring new ways to advance the executive compensation field are incredibly beneficial in helping the Center On Executive Compensation understand emerging themes and assess how to best serve members in this ever-evolving landscape.

This program website below has been updated to include the session's presentation slides as well as group contact information so you can continue to cultivate relationships with your fellow Honors colleagues. We encourage you and your teams to leverage your Center membership and take advantage of the many offerings provided. The Center staff will make plans to reconvene the Honors team and further build on the learnings of this powerful event.

We would like to extend a special thank you to David Kasiarz and American Express for generously hosting this event!
