John Forgeron, P.Eng
John Forgeron is a co-owner and the President of Compass and has been with Compass since 2005.
He created multiple privately-financed, oilfield rental companies, and in 2008, merged three of these businesses into Compass Compression, helping the business emerge from an industry recession as a very strong privately-owned company.
Since that time, John has continued to innovate and grow the business, and he and his partners transformed the organization from the singularly-focused Compass Compression into the diverse Compass of today, ensuring the company emerged stronger than ever during another industry downturn.
The entrepreneurial spirit and drive for innovation shared by John and his partners helped Compass win E&Y’s Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 2011, and together they have established Compass as a leading provider of compression and process systems around the world, with more than 350 employees. In 2020, Compass regained focus on equipment finance options for clients, with the creation of Northbase Finance.
John is dedicated to having the best talent in the industry working at Compass, and he and the entire Compass team are focused on providing clients with expert solutions, exceptional experiences and extraordinary results.
John has been in the gas compression industry since 1991 and is a recognized industry expert. Before joining Compass Compression, he held positions at Enerflex Systems and Toromont Industries.
