ABOUT SCOTT BRACALE
Scott founded Kompass Advisors in 2014 in order to pursue his passion:coaching high-potential executives and their leadership teams enabling them to identify and ACHIEVE their aspirations! He is honored to assist many leaders ages 25-70, male and female, public and private, profit and non-profit, retail, manufacturing, health-care, software development, Fast Casual and Quick serve dining among others. He has driven success among this diverse clientele because leadership competence applies to ANY organization that relies on people for RESULTS. He mentors one of America’s “top 10” ranked CEO’s (according to Glassdoor.com) and Co-Founders of a Shark Tank company (that received 3 offers from the Sharks) among many others.
It all began at an early age, Scott demonstrated a penchant for understanding how things work. He earned a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Management from Purdue University, graduating with honors. Wanting to further his education, Scott returned to Purdue and earned a Master of Science in Management from The Krannert Graduate School of Management.
His Business record is as follows:
Three years in management consulting with Touche Ross, one of the largest management consulting firms in the mid-1980s.
Scott joined Bass Pro Shops in 1989 as VP of corporate expansion. He advanced rapidly and was instrumental in developing strategies regarding talent, markets, and customers, among other duties that helped drive BASS PRO SHOPS (BPS) rapid growth. By the time Scott left BPS went from a single store and four title publisher (cataloguer) delivering about $100M in business to well over $1B in annual sales.
In 1998 Scott turned his sights towards specialty retailer, Limited Too, then with less than 1% market share. Beginning as a VP charged with creating a mail order catalog, he subsequently ushered Limited Too into the ecommerce space. Scott served as both the corporation’s COO and divisional President. He helped grow Limited Too into an 1100 store, 20,000 associate juggernaut having outlets in 22 countries. Ahead of Walmart, Target, Kohl’s, Macy’s and others. Additionally, Limited Too’s spectacular profitability flow-through ranked in the top tenth percentile among all specialty apparel retail.
A decade-long member of Vistage, the world’s leading network of CEOs in all business sectors, Scott has experienced numerous situational executive challenges and has helped explore the “right answers,” along with the consequences — intended or otherwise — of those actions. He’s had the opportunity to implement many of these accelerators in his own business dealings.
In 2014 Scott decided to shift his focus toward his passion — helping leaders recognize their direction and reach their destination while avoiding the hidden land mines along the way! He accomplishes this by providing supportive, hands-on leadership training, team development, and strategic planning services.
COVER MY MEDS
At CoverMyMeds, we help patients get the drugs they need to live healthy lives. This important mission, together with an amazing group of employees and customers helped us become one of the fastest growing software companies in the country, and while being named the best large company in which to work in Columbus.
We’ve never believed there is a right structure for every company. But there is a right structure for a particular point in time, and after a few years of hyper-growth, it was clear that the techniques and organizational structure that had gotten us “here” weren’t going to get us “there.”
Scott has been a true partner with our management team as we transform our great small company (that is now quite large) into a company that has the organizational scalability to become a truly great large company. This will ultimately mean more structure and process, but at the same time, a work experience that has even more meaning and reward for our employees.
Beyond the benefits of building a higher performing company and a better place to work, our engagement with Scott has been personally rewarding. A key element has been building “awareness,” since it is the propellant that drives us through the learning cycle in any new endeavor as we go from “unconsciously incompetent” to “consciously competent” to “unconsciously competent.” We’ve done this as a team, and better relationships with the people we spend a big part of our lives with and count on every day is the result.
I’d recommend Scott to anyone interested in building a company that creates enduring competitive advantage through its people, and would be happy to answer questions from others that are considering his services.
