Steven Hall is annually named to the NACD Directorship 100, a prestigious list of the most influential people in corporate governance and the boardroom.
Our firm is distinguished by a long history of working together. Steven Hall & Partners was formed in September 2005 when our founders, Pearl Meyer, Steven Hall and Steven Root, left Pearl Meyer & Partners, a firm they founded in 1989. At the time, Pearl Meyer & Partners was a division of Clark Consulting and the firm’s offerings included employee compensation, sales compensation, benefits, deferred compensation and surveys. The formation of Steven Hall & Partners was grounded in a desire to return to our roots, focusing solely on matters of executive compensation, board remuneration and corporate governance. It also allowed us to be totally independent, a matter of particular importance given today’s ever more stringent governance standards.
