Meet the Team

Tom Harrold

tharrold@compass101.com (616) 855-5821

With a family plumbing business and an uncle’s property investment portfolio close at hand, Tom has a lifetime of experience managing and maintaining properties. He received his bachelor’s degree from Northeastern University where he also worked in facilities management while studying full time. His experience in the trades grew as he worked alongside seasoned professionals in plumbing, HVAC, carpentry, locksmithing, and controls. After college, Tom worked for a national conventional management company where he achieved regional acclaim until relocating to West Michigan and joining Compass Property Management in 2014. With few contacts and a fresh start in the area, he started with Compass in the maintenance department where he grew from technician to coordinator, and eventually managed the department. Tom is now the Director of Operations for Compass and appreciates the challenge that each unique property brings to the table.

In the community, Tom stays involved with the Conductive Learning Center of North America, a local center for kids learning to overcome neuro-muscular disorders, where he has served on the annual River Bank Run fundraising committee.

Each summer, Tom enjoys life around a bonfire watching backyard movies with his family and travelling to remote destinations in his Jeep.
