Standard Functional Foods Group/Standard Candy

"As a family owned business, with non-family in key management positions, we decided that both the shareholders and senior management team would benefit from having an independent advisory board. We worked with several members of Compass's team to create a board of three independent business executives who have provided council and advice in a number of areas. The advisory board has helped the senior team improve our business, as well as helping our family shareholders know how to assess the performance of our management team."

Genetic Assays

“Since 2007, Compass Executives have, and continue, to serve as a trusted advisor for Genetic Assays, Inc. Initially, we retained Compass Executives to assist our Company with a much needed and delicate restructuring that would allow for a separation between business partners as well as a spin-out of a new Company. Art Rebrovick, with the assistance of Henry Hillenmeyer, handled our needs with a unique and effective blend of seasoned professionalism and compassionate leadership that allowed for all parties to move forward in mutually beneficial paths.  The greatest compliment we can share about Compass Executives is that once this initial project was complete, we asked Compass Executives to continue to advise our Company from an ongoing Board of Director’s role.”

Caregivers By Wholecare

“In growing my business we needed some help with identifying strategies in management and to know if we were on the right track with a few things. We were matched with Pat Asp as an expert in helping to turn companies around with her expertise in coaching Executives and Managers.  Our General Manager says “Pat was instrumental in helping me find my confidence in my management skills. She taught me how to process through a problem, use the facts given to me and listen to my gut instinct to make good management decisions. I feel that since our training I have been more sure of my steps as a manager and I think my team feels it as well. Pat empowered me to trust myself and showed me that I was on the right path in my career.”

Wilson & Associates, P.C.

“I engaged Compass Executives to guide me through an exit plan to transfer the main portion of my business to my two sons and the organization of a separate division. The reorganization allowed me to remove myself from the day to day management of the main business (now managed by my sons) and allowed the key manager of the second business to participate financially in growth without the entanglements of spreading stock ownership.  The exit plan Compass created as part of their project helped me to set goals for my future retirement, including mentally, fiscally and financially.  I was able to hand off my business with total confidence that it would continue to grow and prosper. I can recommend the people and service of Compass Executives to any business owner facing the need for Succession Planning, without reservation.”
