Graham Dent Appointed as New President to Lead Compass Commercial’s Continued Growth

Compass Commercial Real Estate Services is proud to announce the transition of president from Dan Kemp to Graham Dent for the 2023-2024 term. Dent has been in the commercial real estate industry for more than 20 years. He joined Compass Commercial in 2013 after more than ten years with CBRE Global Investors, one of the world’s largest real estate investment advisory firms. Kemp will now be stepping into the role of Vice President of Brokerage, bringing his expertise as the company’s top producer to lead the brokerage team.

“Serving as the president of Compass Commercial over the last two years was an honor, and I am proud of what we’ve achieved as a company during my tenure,” Kemp stated. “Compass Commercial is in good hands and will continue to thrive under Graham’s leadership. Graham is a natural problem solver and leader who cares about this company and his community, and he will work hard to maintain our standard of excellence in the community.”

“I’m honored to lead this company for the next two years,” Dent stated. “Under Dan’s leadership, our company sharpened systems and grew to a new level of efficiency. We will continue to leverage those efficiencies to enhance our client experience. As the only full-service commercial real estate company in Central Oregon, we’re uniquely positioned to provide the highest level of service and expertise to our clients so that they successfully achieve their goals. We aren’t successful unless our clients are successful.”

Over the past two years, Compass Commercial has grown its brand identity as a full-service commercial real estate company with a property management team, a maintenance team, a construction services team, and in-house marketing professionals. The company’s commitment to providing top-notch, client-focused services has helped it achieve record-breaking growth between 2021 and 2022. As Compass Commercial continues to expand its services and achieve impressive growth, the company’s dedication to its community remains a core value.

“Our community involvement will continue to be a very high priority for us,” Dent said. “Proudly, most of our team members are engaged in local business organizations and non-profits. As a company, we will sponsor three very deserving non-profit organizations through our Compass Cares charity program over the next two years. Our commitment to our community is unwavering, and I’m extremely proud of our pledge to give back.”
