    Executive Compensation Survey: Principal, Consulting Industry


    A recently completed search for a Principal role for a Northeast-based consulting company with a significant presence in private equity, manufacturing, and a host of other industries, presented the following executive compensation insights:

    the Highlights:

    • Title/FunctionPrincipal
    • Ownership Structure: Private Equity-backed
    • Industry: Consulting, Market Research
    • Location: Northeast & Midwest USA

    As executive search consultants, a by-product of our expertise is a diverse directory of executive compensation surveys.

    When we complete an assignment, we aggregate the compensation data we have collected across the search and share it with the executive talent community from which it came. In this case, in Q3 and Q4 2022, we conducted a Principal search for a private equity-backed consulting company.

    To support our talent strategy, we focused on the target talent pool comprising those who either currently or in recent past roles held titles of Practice Leader, Principal, and a host of related executive leadership roles. A requirement of at least 10 years in a senior consulting role leading a team was a priority in this search.
