Compass Client In The News

May 15, 2012 at 10:00 am 1 comment

It’s always a little thrilling to get the Portland Business Journal in the mail and see one of my clients featured.  This week the shout goes out to Brian Simmons, President of Fluid Market Strategies.

Brian and I have known each other for 10 or 12 years now.  When we met, I was HR Manager and he was a Project Manager at Ecos Consulting.  Over the years I came to value Brian’s vision of how company culture should be managed and maintained – how essential it is to an organization’s overall success.  Success not just financially, but in reputation and fan base.  He and I have always shared a similar vision.

When I started Compass, Brian sought me out to help him as he got Fluid up and running.  Fluid was my first client.  As they grew, my admiration and respect for Brian and his staff grew exponentially.  I still hold them up as the gold standard of how to preserve a great culture through change, growth, bumps in the road and acquisitions.

In the Business Journal article, Brian states that his guiding principle is “Do the right thing and die with more friends than money.”  That sums up every reason that Brain continues to be a role model for me.

Best of everything, Brian, you deserve it!
