Testimonials

Comments from a range of executives and management who have experienced working with our Managing Director, Patrick Robertson, in his past consulting roles.

Dan MacSweeney, CEO, Carbery Group

“Patrick has been providing advice to our Remuneration Committee over the last 3 years. In that time, he has designed performance based incentives and provided market remuneration data for executives in Ireland and internationally. The Remuneration Committee has been very satisfied with the advice that Patrick has provided over that time and also with the clear manner in which he communicates this advice to them. He has built up a strong degree of trust in the relationship with the Remuneration Committee, which is so important. I would have no hesitation in recommending Patrick for similar work in the future.”

He supported our objective to redesign our total compensation structure including the redesign of our pension scheme and benefits model.”
