2015-2016 Director Compensation Report: Appendices

In brief: NACD is pleased to present the 2015-2016 Director Compensation Report Appendices, with benchmarking data from the 17th annual survey of non-employee director compensation. The director compensation report appendices, compiled by leading compensation consultancy Pearl Meyer, shows director pay practices across a wide range of industries and company sizes. The data are based on 1,400 companies across 24 industries—according to their industry classification within Standard & Poor’s Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS)—that filed a proxy statement or other financial statement with director compensation information for the fiscal year ending between Feb. 1, 2014 and Jan. 31, 2015. Data for the survey is provided in part by Equilar Inc. 

This resource can help your board:

  • Benchmark against compensation at other companies
  • Consider appropriate pay mechanisms

This year’s report appendices unfortunately do not contain all the benchmarking data tables contained in previous years. For further analysis of director pay, please see the related 2015-2016 Director Compensation Report. For further information on director pay or for compensation consultation, please contact Jannice Koors, managing director at Pearl Meyer, by emailing jannice.koors@pearlmeyer.com.
