“MDG offers easy-to-use tools and reports to gather relevant data for use in executive compensation benchmarking and proxy analysis. We’ve leveraged MDG to help us identify potential peers by industry, peers of peers, revenue, and other factors.

Annually, our MDG team helps us pull proxy data for a customized Russell 3000 peer group, which our external consultant uses in their analysis and report to the compensation committee. 

Our subscription to MDG has saved my team many hours that we would have incurred if we had to manually pull the proxies and enter the data ourselves. I most appreciate the responsiveness of the MDG team. Thank you for being a great business partner.”
