The Parental Units – Joe & Lucille Compagno

Where it all started . . . Mom and Dad originally operated a gas station in New York. They relocated to Florida in the early 80s and settled in Delray Beach. Dad operated a repair shop and dealership in Delray for many years. He’s been in the business for over 40 years and has passed much of his knowledge and experience on to his kids. They are both pretty much retired now and spend most of their time spoiling the grandkids and granddoggies :).

John Compagno – Sales & Finance Manager

(772) 288-2099 – [email protected]

John actually started his post-graduate career from FAU with a debt consolidation company. So, needless to say, he’s pretty good with numbers. He is largely responsible for the sales center with an emphasis on assisting customers with financing. While being the numbers guy might sound kind of dull, John is also one of the many comedians of the group. So even if you are talking numbers, he’ll have a smile on your face.

Lisa started working with her brothers and dad in late 2011 after 10 years working as a Federal Prosecutor. Lisa is the “idea man”, errr woman. While she helps with the day-to-day operations, her main focus is marketing and community involvement. She established Palm Tree as a member of the Stuart/Martin County Chamber of Commerce and Hobe Sound Chamber of Commerce as well as a sponsor of several local charities, schools and sports organizations. Lisa also sits on the Board of Directors for the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches and is a Past President and Chairwoman of the Board for the Florida Independent Automobile Dealers Association (FIADA).

Anthony might be what you call the “brains of the operation.” He coordinates management of the sales center with his brother John as well as management of the service center for our repair shop, Paradise Tire and Service (www.paradisetireandservice.com). Part of his sense for business stems from his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from UCF (Go Knights!). After graduating college, Anthony considered starting his own business. But he saw that Dad could use some help, so he applied for the job. The rest is history.

Scott is a second generation car guy. His dad, Ray Griggs, is well-known locally and helped to build the Bev Smith brand. After getting his finance degree from Stetson University, Scott followed in his dads footsteps. He worked for Bev Smith Ford/Mullinax Ford for over 10 years. Scott took a break from the car biz for a few years to manage a bowling alley but he eventually came back to cars. Scott would be happy to help you with your automotive needs. Feel free to give him a call.

Jacob Ochoa Portrait

Jacob Ochoa – Sales & Finance Consultant

(772) 252-4882 – [email protected]

Jacob heads up our Ft. Pierce location. He is originally from Texas (and wears the boots to prove it!). He speaks Spanish and understands Mandarin (“Ni hao”). Jacob has a background in finance with a degree in Finance and Economics from the University of North Texas. It was in college that he first worked for a used car dealership. He started off as a customer and was later offered a job. Jacob is probably the most personable of all of us. He puts an emphasis on ensuring that our customers have a pleasant experience. He tells people that Palm Tree Auto Sales “is a different type of used car dealership; we don’t push people into something they don’t want.”
