It was a pleasure to work with Westman & Associates to create comprehensive professional development plans for our executive leadership team. The project included interviews with each of the ELT members, leadership assessments and career goal discussions. Once completed, each ELT member was presented with a robust professional development plan that fit their needs and professional development goals. The process was beneficial to the organization as well as the individuals. I would not hesitate to work with Westman & Associates on future projects.

It was a pleasure working with David in 2017 to develop a succession plan structure and methodology for our organization. David met with each of my directors individually and me, and provided guidance for establishing a plan, which will be easy to modify in the future. He was great to work with, delivered what he promised, and I would fully recommend his services to others.

Association EasyComp is a flexible compendium that allows you to easily compare industry data with your own
internal data. It removes all of the mystery around compensation.

Compensation analysis is a key component of staffing and talent management. I recently worked with David to update our compensation data and he introduced me to the Association Easy Comp (AEC) tool. In addition to AEC being a straight-forward and user-friendly resource; working with David to tailor the information to best suit our organizational structure was a positive learning experience. David’s expertise in Compensation Administration not only helped me get up to speed quickly with the compensation tool, but I also benefited from David’s guidance in navigating and interpreting market data appropriately.

We have used Westman & Associates Consulting for several years. Its distinction has and always been data. In more recent years, David Westman has created a tool called the Association EasyComp which puts his data in my hands AND allows me to manipulate it for my needs. It is impressive while being extremely easy to use. Hence the name – Easy Compensation (EasyComp). It’s a game changer!

Kayla Westman showed a quick grasp of our business and our needs. Her turnaround time was excellent on the work product as well as phone calls and emails. I like that she came back with different ideas that worked for other clients plus some ideas that were unique to our situation. Will definitely use Westman & Associates for future consulting needs.
We contracted with Westman and Associates for our first ever compensation analysis. We wanted data interpreted by an outside third party to convince our association leadership that one or two of our key staff salaries required significant adjustment. David spent a great deal of time to understand who we were, objectives and, more importantly, our deadlines. The data we received gives our senior staff leadership confidence our compensation (with the adjustments) is appropriate. I highly recommend him.

It was a pleasure to work with David on a comprehensive compensation analysis in late 2021. David is a wealth of information surrounding compensation and best practices for this critical aspect of any business’s work. He is very efficient with his time and all associated communication. David helped us craft a compensation philosophy that will be functional and sustainable for our organization into the foreseeable future. David presents invaluable data in an easy to understand fashion. I would highly recommend David without hesitation.

David was very professional, knowledgeable and prompt regarding responses and special requests (executive performance & compensation consulting). The price was right, and I received a professional service from start to finish.
United Cerebral Palsy of Sacramento and Northern California
David maintained communication throughout the duration of our compensation analysis project. When he had
questions, he was quick to come to me with his thought process and seek out my final opinion before moving the
project along. David was always flexible and that is appreciated. Association EasyComp itself is wonderful – it’s sharp,
easy to maneuver, and I can certainly see why it’s called Easy Comp! I highly recommend this tool and I look forward to
utilizing this service for a more comprehensive analysis in the near future.
