Announcing Alliance Compensation

Announcing Alliance Compensation

On June 15, 2020, two great firms and three great consultants will be joining forces in a new business venture. Announcing Alliance Compensation!

Columbia Compensation Consulting Inc. and Compass Total Rewards LLC will be merging. Principals Jim Harvey and Nancy Ellington are being joined by David Adent, most recently of Cisco Systems. Jim, Nancy, and David all met while working together in senior compensation leadership roles at Cisco.

Columbia Compensation and Compass Total Rewards have served local, regional, national, and global clients across the spectrum of compensation and rewards strategy, design, and advisory services. They’ve built a reputation for experience, excellence, and expertise. David is a natural fit to the new firm with his extensive background in executive and board consultation and broad industry experience. Alliance Compensation already has clients in the Western United States including Washington, Oregon, California, Utah, and Arizona. They’ll also serve Idaho, Montana and Nevada.

As friends and colleagues, they believe now is the time to form their Alliance given their successes in their own businesses as well as combining their collective knowledge, experience, and expertise to serve their existing clients, and form new relationships. Most of their new business comes through their current client’s referrals, something they’ll continue to value and strive to live up to as they move forward.

There will not be any disruption in any services that clients have relied on; as a matter of fact, their Alliance should increase their availability. Their focus has been and remains serving the broad spectrum of compensation, rewards, and incentives from the basic blocking and tackling of market pricing and salary structures to the highly specialized and specific aspects of executive and sales compensation. And you’ll still be able to work with your existing partner, although you may want to meet the whole team along the way – they’re putting their heads together behind the scenes to make sure their products and services are everything you expect and more.

For existing clients, your continued support and partnership are greatly appreciated. For new clients, the Alliance Compensation team looks forward to meeting you and learning about your compensation needs.
