Mayte “M” Lopez

Founder of Compass Marketing


Hi, My name's Mayte (or M) Lopez and I'm the Lead Marketing Strategist and Co-Founder of Compass Marketing.

I'd like to start by thanking you for taking the time to read this. I know that there is a lot of competition for your attention nowadays, and I'm grateful that you have decided to get to know me, my business, and what we stand for, better.

I started Compass because 1. I have always had the entrepreneur bug and 2. I wanted to work in a field I was passionate about. I love the ability to be creative every day and the fantastic feeling I get when I connect a customer to a business and I’ve sold one of the biggest problems businesses face: discovery.

Prior to co-founding lotlerco & Compass Marketing, I worked at one of the most admired and profitable companies in the U.S.,  where I learned the importance of the right people and processes, paying attention to every detail (even the ones people won't "see"), and the value of staying away from the status quo in order to remain innovative.

When not at the helm of either of my businesses, you can find me in Miami, Fl or Seattle, WA, spending time with my family and friends, discovering new restaurants or bars, and volunteering at the Northwest Harvest Cherry St Food Bank.

Why Marketing? Growing up with an entrepreneur father, I learned very quickly in life that I wanted to follow in his footsteps and was always drawn to problem solving, expressing my creativity, and designing. Marketing fits me like a glove and it is truly my passion to help businesses like the one my father owned thrive in the modern marketplace.
