Leah Sternberg, a longtime Coldwell Banker manager who jumped to Compass to lead its Pasadena office last year, has been let go from her position at the company, a Compass spokesperson told The Real Deal.

In an email, Compass communications chief Julie Binder said the company had “parted ways” with Sternberg after it “became increasingly clear that her management style was inconsistent” with the company’s approach.

Sternberg, who held the title of regional vice president, did not respond to a request for comment.

Kathy Mehringer, another Coldwell Banker alumnus who moved to the company in 2015, will take the reins of the Pasadena office for now, Binder said.

Sternberg moved to Compass in early 2016. She previously served as district manager for Coldwell Banker for nearly two years, where she handled clients in the San Gabriel Valley and the northwest region of Los Angeles and oversaw 15 offices and 900 agents.

Her arrival coincided with a massive push by Compass into California and the opening of offices in Pasadena, Montecito and Santa Barbara.
