About Hugessen Consulting

We offer a broad range of Board-focused advice and support to clients across North America.

Founded in 2006 in response to a rapid growth in demand from Boards to receive truly independent advice, Hugessen has since become the dominant provider across Canada of Board-side advice on executive compensation and its governance. In expanding its presence in the US, Hugessen has developed a close working partnership with leading NYC-based executive compensation consulting firm, Steven Hall & Partners.

The Hugessen Consulting roundtable hosted by Hugessen Consulting and Steven Hall & Partners provided a unique opportunity for shareholders and directors to exchange ideas and share concerns. As a director, I left with useful information and new insights.  The opportunity to continue conversations over dinner and at breaks was both enjoyable and helpful.  I would recommend attending this stimulating meeting — it’s both valuable and lively.
