Founder The Compass Circle

Casey Cooper is the founder of The Compass Circle. She is a trucking company owner with over 16 years in the transportation industry. In 2006, she started a trucking company, and over the course of the next decade, turned one truck into a US$6 million transportation pipeline. She now travels the world teaching women-owned and minority companies how to do the same. She has performed some of the world’s largest trans­portation projects, ranging from power plants to extensive projects with some of the world’s most renown ports.

The Compass Circle has also helped hundreds of black-owned businesses get certified and registered to do business with the federal government. In 2019, she single-handedly helped 12 Black-owned transportation companies enter FEMA's transportation service provider program—at that time there were only 89 in the world.
