Tim Cole is the Founder and CEO of The Compass Alliance and the Author of The Compass Solution, A Guide to Winning Your Career.
Tim has invested three plus decades in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry – through dozens of restructures and five mergers.
He has held multiple leadership and senior executive positions and played a major role in the ascent of a mid-sized firm into one of the largest in the world with direct involvement in the launch of 20 plus pharmaceutical brands – six of which became global blockbusters.
His experience spans sales, marketing, training, human resources, and leadership development. Along the way he’s managed billions of dollars of portfolio and thousands of people. Tim was able to do more than survive what is arguably the most highly competitive industry in the world. He developed markers that were to guide his career even as he saw scores struggle to “climb the mountain.”
Now Tim focuses his time and energy on sharing the secrets and lessons he learned in the corporate world to help others achieve sustainable, successful and fulfilling careers. Tim Cole grew up in the Carolinas and traveled much of the country before making Charlotte his home. He and wife Nancy have two grown sons, a daughter-in-law, and one grandchild.
