Management Consultant & Principal, Compensia, Inc.
About Jason Borrevik
Jason Borrevik grew up in Eugene, Oregon. In school, his two strengths proved to be academics and athletics, favoring basketball, football and tennis. His academic strengths and hard work paid off when he graduated Manga Cum Laude from the University of Oregon with a BA in Economics. Subsequently, Jason graduated from law school at the University of California, Berkeley, Boalt Hall. With aspirations to become a sports agent, he worked as a legal intern with the Oakland Raiders.
One of Jason Borrevik’s first jobs when he graduated law school in 1997 was at the law firm Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati. While there, he specialized in assisting tech companies with their complex legal, tax and accounting matters. He found similarities between his responsibilities as an interface between boards and management teams, and the way sports agents work with their athletes.
In 2005, Jason Borrevik joined Compensia as a management consultant. The company was still relatively new and he saw their compelling business model and ability to achieve huge success. He still works within Compensia, now as a Principal executive compensation consultant. His clients include companies in the technology and life science sectors. In short, with his extensive expertise, he advises Boards of Directors and management teams on their compensation programs. Furthermore, these companies range in size from start-up to mature public corporations.
