Mission & purpose

From the beginning, Frederic W. Cook & Co., Inc. has provided independent advice to our clients. Our firm was founded in 1973 in New York City when the American economy was stagnant and equity compensation was not yet in its infancy. Since our founding, the executive compensation landscape has changed dramatically – from ERTA to 409A, from Sarbanes-Oxley to Dodd Frank, from regulation SK to Topic 718, and from "Black Friday"​ to the financial crisis of 2008, the complexities of executive compensation have increased significantly. Sweeping governance reforms have further heightened the need for compensation committees to retain independent advisors. Through all the changes, FW Cook has remained the industry leader. Our firm has grown to seven offices across the country, and has served more than 3,000 clients, including some of the largest, most successful companies in the world. Our market share among companies in the Fortune 1000 and S&P 500 is unparalleled in the industry. While some firms provide executive compensation services as a secondary offering to their primary lines of business, our firm consults on executive compensation as its sole business.
