Blair Jones, managing director at Semler Brossy, a preeminent national executive compensation consulting firm, was named to the National Association of Corporate Directors’ (NACD) Directorship 100 list for her work promoting exemplary leadership, oversight and courage in the boardroom. This is the sixth consecutive year Jones has been named to the prestigious list.
“Blair’s creative, yet-focused approach has helped corporate boards make well-informed decisions on specialized compensation for decades,” says Roger Brossy, managing director and co-founder of Semler Brossy. “This recognition reflects her unwavering commitment to helping companies meet their goals by considering the unique business objectives, strategies, market challenges and culture at play.”
An executive compensation consultant since 1991, Jones works extensively with companies in the healthcare, retail, professional services and consumer products sectors to navigate spin-offs, mergers and acquisitions, turnarounds and executive successions. Jones holds the Certified Benefits Professional, Certified Compensation Professional and Certified Executive Compensation Professional designations.
She currently serves as a member of WorldatWork’s Executive Rewards Advisory Council.
“Blair’s recognition by NACD is most well-deserved,” says Jim Barrall, retired Latham & Watkins’ partner and senior fellow in residence at the UCLA School of Law. “Having worked in the executive compensation and corporate governance arena for more than 40 years, and with Blair on a wide range of matters, I can say that Blair is one of the most knowledgeable, thoughtful and personable consultants with whom I have ever worked. Her listening and consensus building skills are off the charts.”
The NACD, a national authority on boardroom practices that represents more than 19,000 corporate board members, annually recognizes leading corporate directors, governance experts, policymakers and influences who make significant impacts on boardroom practices and performance.
Jones will be celebrated alongside the other honorees at the NACD Directorship 100 gala Nov. 28 in New York City, and featured in the November/December 2018 issue of NACD Directorship magazine.
