Recent events including the global pandemic, institutional investor views, social justice movements and changes in the administration have influenced current areas of focus in executive compensation.  The unanticipated impact of COVID-19 has shaped bank incentive plan design in 2021 and beyond.  Considerations of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues with an emphasis on diversity, equity and inclusion and human capital are being discussed and debated as to whether these priorities play a role in compensation outcomes.  In this interactive session, we explore current hot topics, trends and future expectations.

2:40 PM – 2:55 PM

Shaun Bisman, Principal, Compensation Advisory Partners
Michael Bonner, Principal, Compensation Advisory Partners
Anthony Eppert, Partner, Hunton Andrews Kurth LLP
Kelly Malafis, Founding Partner, Compensation Advisory Partners
While these topics may be seen as administrative tasks, when used correctly, they can enhance the effectiveness of committees and provide protection for board members.  This session shares pitfalls and best practices to help your bank’s committees and human resources department function better while improving compensation governance.  This includes the proper documentation and procedures related to delegations of authority to grant equity and the hiring and termination of executive officers.  We also cover which board committee is responsible for management succession planning, how to successfully facilitate succession strategies and how often it should be discussed throughout the year.  A typical calendar of events for the compensation committee is also provided.
