Founder & Executive Chairman

Website

Ori Allon is the executive chairman and co-founder of Compass, a two-year-old residential brokerage in New York City that originally launched as Urban Compass, changing its name at the beginning of 2015.

Much of Compass early buzz in the marketplace and its appeal to brokers hinged on in-house technology that supposedly not only cut down on administrative work, but also facilitated faster reaction to listing changes and debuts. Skepticism remains, however, about just how liberating and fast Compass technology is.

What is not in dispute is that Compass has piled on big names and big assignments since its founding. Leonard Steinberg, long one of Douglas Ellimans top-performing Manhattan brokers, joined Compass in 2014 as president. Other big, new names include Kyle Blackmon, formerly of Brown Harris Stevens; Jay Glazer of Warburg Realty; and Gene Martinez from the Corcoran Group.

Compass investors have also included notable names such as landlord and developer Bill Rudin and SalesForce.com founder Marc Benioff as well as institutions such as Goldman Sachs. Indeed, the brokerages executive ranks claim quite a few banking and consultancy alums.

Allon himself springs from a more technical background. He was the engineering director of Twitters New York office immediately prior to founding Compass with Robert Reffkin. He had sold an earlier company, Julpan, to the social media giant in 2011. Aron also logged time at Google, where he worked on algorithms for its search engine.

Allon earned a PhD in computer science at the University of New South Wales in Australia.
