Compass Minerals Adds Jonathan Rose to Senior Management Team

Compass Minerals announced the addition of Jonathan Rose to its senior management team in the role of chief strategy officer.

In this role, Rose will lead efforts to continue charting a long-term strategic roadmap for the company through the optimization of its core Salt and Plant Nutrition businesses while growing into the adjacent markets of lithium and next-gen fire retardants.

Prior to joining Compass Minerals, Rose most recently served as chief financial officer for Standard Power. He brings nearly three decades of leadership experience in strategy, finance, mergers and acquisitions, and human resources – largely focused on the mining and metals space – at some of the largest investment banks and financial service companies in the world. Earlier in his career, he also co-led diversity recruiting efforts for a multinational investment bank and spent time as a field coordinator for a non-profit dedicated to international development and education.

“I am excited for the experience and new perspective that Jonathan will bring to this work as we continue to act with intention toward building a stronger Compass Minerals,” said Kevin S. Crutchfield, president and CEO.

Rose earned a Bachelor of Arts in economics from the University of Virginia and a Master of International Affairs from Columbia University in New York City.
