A Message from VenuWorks Founder and President, Steve Peters:
When I formed VenuWorks in my basement fifteen years ago, I originally called the company Compass Facility Management. I chose that name based on the works of Stephen Covey who advised leaders to manage by the compass and not by the time clock . In 2007 the Compass name changed to VenuWorks but the philosophy of the original name lives on. As a privately held company VenuWorks still manages client venues by the compass. VenuWorks is not tied to the "time clock" of quarterly earnings reports. This allows us to work with each client to find the "true north" for its facility. We can afford to take the long view as we work with you and the community to achieve the best solutions and the best outcomes possible.
Virtually every society on earth values the four basic principles of integrity, accountability, compassion, and forgiveness. Yet in today's world, large corporations prosper and profit by contradicting these basic human values. As a privately held, family owned, and independent company, VenuWorks encourages and empowers its people across the country to observe and practice these four principles that are so basic to us all.
Steven L. Peters
