Rene Ghorashy ~ Marketing & Business Development
Rene represents the personal side of Compass Construction; she is responsible for working with local agents and other professional contacts to ensure that they are familiar with what we offer. Communication is what sets Compass Construction apart from the rest, and it is Rene’s duty to ensure that all parties are in the loop on any given project. Her success derives itself from a very diligent project management style. She is very proactive in knowing where every aspect of a project stands at any given time. This has been very instrumental at keeping problems at bay. She takes ownership of each project from the initial sale to the final completion and follows up to ensure customer satisfaction. In addition to sales and project management, Rene has a strong background in management and training that stems from her 24 years in the United States Navy where she obtained the rank of Chief Petty Officer. This rank comes with great responsibility, and she excelled at it. Her Navy career was where she could truly strut her talent by training and preparing her shipmates for various missions. She is very proud of her accomplishment of retiring after 24 years of service. For fun, Rene likes the spending time with her family and one of her many cousins doing everything from camping, to dancing, to event planning. It’s never a dull day with her around.

With that Dave is usually the first person you meet from Compass Construction. Not only does he deal with insurance companies to resolve repair scopes and pricing, he understand that our clients have experienced a loss and he begins the process of making our clients whole again. Dave’s two favorite things outside his kids are “golf & golf”‘.
