Penny Pompei exemplifies the success achieved by combining strategic vision, entrepreneurial mindset, unlimited energy and high ethical standards in today’s challenging business world.  After 20 years as a successful serial entrepreneur, she has dedicated the last decade to helping small business organizations achieve greater success in meeting the needs of its clients and the communities they serve.

Her entrepreneurial vision was honed from a variety of entrepreneurial endeavors.  Penny’s first business was a successful nationwide consulting, architecture, construction and design firm, PNI Architects, Inc. & DKM Construction Company which she founded and built into a $10 million company with 100 employees.  That was followed by a Travel Agency which she built to a million dollars in annual revenue in the shortest time on record for the worldwide franchise.  She was also instrumental in the founding of a family-owned boutique winery, Villa Pompei Vineyards, in California’s wine country with her husband, Carl.  Every wine produced by the winery was awarded a silver or bronze medal, and even won the prestigious gold medal at the International Wine Festival for the unique winery label which Ms. Pompei designed.

Between entrepreneurial endeavors, Ms. Pompei was tapped to bring her management and business expertise into government service as California’s Administrative Director for the Department of Workers Compensation.  Her role was to promulgate regulations and implement the newly enacted Workers’ Compensation Reform legislation requiring a complete reorganization of the department and its 40 branch offices, 280 judges and hundreds of support staff.

In recognition of her many business successes, Ms. Pompei was honored as San Francisco’s first “Woman Business Owner of the Year” and “Women Construction Owners & Executives Contractor of the Year.”  She was also profiled as one of America’s 32 most successful women entrepreneurs in the Acropolis Books “America’s New Women Entrepreneurs.”

For the last decade Ms. Pompei has directed her energies and strategic planning talents to the business community after serving for many years on the Board of Directors of numerous construction and design industry trade associations where she saw a need for better strategic decision making.

She has served as the CEO of the National Women’s Business Center in Washington DC, the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce, and Women Construction Owners and Executives USA.  Ms. Pompei is now the CEO of Pompei International, Inc., and focuses on helping small and woman-owned businesses become even more successful.  She is also a Certified SCORE Mentor and serves as the Vice Chair of the Palm Beach SCORE office.

Ms. Pompei and her husband (also a serial entrepreneur) live on Singer Island, FL.  She has a son, a stepson, a stepdaughter and four incredibly beautiful and talented grandsons!
