Chase Sutton Head Shot Compass Resorts 2020

Chase Sutton

Accounting Associate

Accounting Associate Chase Sutton holds the record for being the most interesting yet unsuspecting Compass Resorts employee so far. Not only is he a great accountant but he’s also traveled to 15 countries, studied abroad in China, stepped on an octopus in Grand Turk, learned to waterski in Italy, and self-published a 562-page novel. In fact, his proudest moment was holding the first finished copy. And, you would never suspect, but that’s just the beginning. His diverse, adventurous background helps make him a vital part of the Compass Resorts family. In fact, Chase’s favorite part of working for Compass is bringing things, mostly numbers, into balance. He believes that in accounting there’s always a solution, and it doesn’t hurt that the numbers don’t complain. Other than numbers, he’s also passionate about writing, reading, music, art, architecture, truth, honor, respect, fairness, politics, history, learning/education, philosophy, inclusion, the environment--especially the ocean and what he calls, “all things celestial.”
