Christie Summervill

Christie Summervill’s vision and expertise led to the creation of BalancedComp in 2010, a firm that has grown to serve nearly 300 banks and credit unions across the US and employ more than a dozen talented professionals at its Wichita, Kansas headquarters. With 20 years of experience in financial industry compensation, she’s developed innovative technologies and processes that have transformed the way financial institutions pay their employees—more fairly, accurately, and competitively. She’s a true partner, collaborating with boards and executives to set salary ranges and create meaningful incentive plans that align the organization’s mission and its philosophies.

As a first generation American of parents who immigrated from East Germany, and a purple belt in karate, Christie’s grit, resolve, and loyalty ensure she exceeds expectations of her team, her clients, and her community. She serves as the chairman of the board for Working Men of Christ, a ministry that provides housing and mentoring to individuals coming out of incarceration. She is an active attendee at CUNA HRTD, Bank Directors Conference, the Financial Managers Society Conference, and other leading industry events.

On Sunday evenings, she finds joy in hosting big family meals with rousing ping pong and pool tournaments. She‘s the proud mother of four children, three of whom work at BalancedComp, and a doting grandmother of two little girls.

“If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together.”

Philippe Asselin

Philippe Asselin has a real sense for team and process and bringing the two together for powerful performance results. While Philippe is able to connect with and support hundreds of banks and credit unions across the country, you’ll see him at his best when he consults one-on-one and educates on the tools that ensure his clients find success. He’s most energized by being able to empower HR leadership with the BalancedComp systems that help them work smarter.

Philippe’s background brings varied perspectives to the conversation and deconstructs client obstacles with a well-rounded approach. He spent more than 20 years managing some of the world’s most profitable restaurants and was an executive at a billion-plus asset-sized financial institution for several years.

This dedicated family man, and proud Troy University alum, shares the same drive and focus in financial institution board rooms as he does his many personal pursuits. In 2010 he organized, and still manages, a charity paddleboard race to fundraise a low-income scholarship program. He’s also actively involved with the National Breast Cancer Foundation, K9s for Warriors, and The Wounded Warrior Foundation.

“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”

Deborah Reid

To see Deborah Reid truly in her element, you’ve got to witness her on-site with new clients implementing the BalancedComp product, training, and educating. She has more than 30 years experience as an SHRM-certified HR professional. That expertise, coupled with the prowess of the applications, makes Deborah a trusted advisor to hundreds of banks and credit unions across the US.

She has an honest approach to HR management that makes her an empathetic and stalwart partner committed to ensuring her clients earn the greatest value through her counsel. When she’s not in the room with clients, she’s readily available to troubleshoot a performance review or position grade, or work through a compensation concern.

Deborah is a devoted contributor to the Kansas Humane Society and St. Jude charities, and actively involved with Wichita-area SHRM meetings and events. Her heart is otherwise dedicated to a large family of eight adult children, including three sets of twins, and twin labradors!

“Treat others the way that you want them to treat you!”

Anthony Bieker

Anthony Bieker’s aptitude for numbers and ability to identify and forecast trends makes him an invaluable asset at both BalancedComp and for our clients. He can process and decipher the most obtuse data, and make it accessible and consumable for the most layman of audiences. Most importantly, it all translates to helping our clients pay their employees fairly and accurately.

It’s that sharp eye and acuity that makes Anthony as much a force in economics as on the tennis court. He loves the game and enjoys his breaks there, or with his wife and two boxers. He shares some of that free time with the Dress for Success organization and Sant Espwa, a ministry addressing social, educational, and spiritual needs.
