Tom Garrity

As Managing Partner of Compass Point Consulting, LLC, I’m a growth strategy and ownership transition expert with extensive experience in family businesses. I work directly the ownership and their executive teams.  

My background is all about working in family businesses and includes growing up in several of them myself.  I built several distribution operations, and switched to sales with a large middle market family business in the building products industry. I am a former president of two early stage, family business manufacturing companies in the fabric-building and factory automation industries. All this extensive business development experience, broad leadership positions and a practical financial analysis background would become the seed for helping other owners and executives. 

That seed grew into Compass Point in 2003. My love for family businesses comes from my belief that strong families can build phenomenal companies for generations to come. As a certified Gravitas Impact™ and Value Builder™ Business Coach, I spend 100 hours annually in professional development. I never stop learning and I take all that insight back to my clients.

I love being a part of the Lehigh Valley community and give my time through a number of board positions and volunteer commitments, including:

  • Board member of HoverTech International
  • Board member of HCSC Inc
  • Active board member and former Chairman of the Board for The Forum for Ethics in the Workplace
  • Board member for the Presidents Council at DeSales University
  • Active member of Greater Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce
  • Former board member for the Lehigh Valley Economic Development Corporation, serving as the Chairman of the board 2013 - 2014
  • Contributing writer at Lehigh Valley Business Journal
  • Active member at St Thomas More, Allentown
