D.G. McDermott Associates, a management consulting firm specializing in executive compensation programs announces that Paul Oliva, a Certified Compensation Professional (CCP), has joined the firm as a partner. Paul is recognized as a global expert in sales compensation plan design and variable reward and recognition programs. His innovative approach to global career ladders was the subject of a World at Work Journal's 2009 article

Oliva will focus on building McDermott Associates' sales incentive plan design capabilities and will consult with the firm's clients on career ladders, pay for performance, and compensation philosophy. He will provide the firm's clients with turnkey solutions for sales incentive programs, from design through executive approval, financial modeling, communication planning, rollout, and post-implementation analysis.

"Paul has the real world experience to make innovative pay plans work effectively for our clients," says Don McDermott, the firm's founder and senior partner. "Paul is creative, practical and knows how to put theory into practice. He is also quick to gain insight to a client's organizational culture and how it will likely impact incentive plan and compensation program design."

Oliva has more than 20 years experience in the field of compensation design and more than 15 years experience in sales incentive design. His approach to career ladders provides a detailed road map of the specific competencies and behaviors an employee must demonstrate over time to be considered for promotion to the next level. Its most valuable asset to employees is that it directly addresses their most important question: "What do I need to do to get to the next level in my career?"

A longstanding member of the American Compensation Association, now World at Work, Oliva has earned the Global Remuneration Professional (GRP) designation, in addition to his CCP. Oliva is a member of the New Jersey Compensation Association (NJCA). He received his Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from University at Buffalo and his Masters of Science in Industrial/Organizational Psychology from the Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken, NJ.
