Who We Are

Compass Integrated Communications launched in 2009 as a full-service marketing communications firm. Since that time, we’ve built an impressive portfolio of clients that deliver some of the most innovative and exciting technologies in the world. Each client has the complete attention of our experienced team. Here is a closer look at our senior-level team members.

Rhianna Daniels Hile

Chief Strategy Officer

Who am I? I am a rapid-fire writer, a data-driven analyst, a big dreamer, a trusted consultant, a social media enthusiast, a seasoned storyteller, and a complete nerd.I founded Compass in 2009 because I wanted to do things differently. Technology-driven organizations needed a communications firm that wasn’t limited by typical industry phrases like “billable hours” and “scope.” They needed a partner that could say yes when it was most needed and be there waiting when they weren’t but still working diligently in the background. They needed an agency that would act as an extension of their internal team — as a full-time employee but without the learning curve. The result of this idea is Compass, a full-service digital marketing and media firm that is not limited by typical agency boundaries and is designed to be a full-time partner to our customers.

As the chief strategy officer, I help brands find their voice and unique paths to success. I thrive at developing personal relationships with each client, building long-term partnerships, and providing valuable insight to help create a vision of what makes their companies unique.

Beyond #worklife, my husband and son keep me grounded and remind me take in the small wonders of life each day. I also ride dressage, indulge in the occasional Disney tradition of Drinking Around the World, and run marathons sometimes.

Kayla Kelly

Senior Account Executive

Discovering her passion for media and public relations early on, Kayla graduated with a B.S. in Communications with a concentration in Public Relations from Old Dominion University, and began her career as Brand Manager at a video production company. While learning the ins and outs of content creation and brand management, she also discovered the value of treating your clients like family- something that’s only become more important throughout her career. While serving in different positions, her north star has always been keeping her clients first.

 

Relying on intentional and strategic communication, Kayla strives to go above and beyond when upholding brand integrity, meeting expectations, and managing deliverables. She enjoys all aspects of the field, but creating and maintaining successful relationships and studying brands to gage how to best serve them are some of her favorite parts of the job.

 

Kayla lives in Central Florida with her husband and pup. She loves most outdoor adventures (no heights please!), practicing her baking skills, and spending the day at a theme park.

Brianna Ramos

PR and Marketing Lead

When she started at the University of Tampa, Brianna was hoping to find her passion in the school of business. Brianna soon found marketing to be the perfect place for her creative spirit and analytical mind. Since graduating she has been working in Marketing and has truly come to enjoy helping companies find their identity and perfect their social media platforms.

 

She’s a born and raised Jersey girl but after graduating from UT Brianna knew Tampa was her new home. When she’s not working she can be found checking out the newest restaurants in Tampa with her husband, at the dog park with her mini goldendoodle, or just enjoying all Florida has to offer. She also spends time volunteering with the Arthritis Foundation and serving on their local leadership board.

Alex Perkins

Social Media & Public Relations

Born and raised in Houston, Alex left home in 2018 to study at McNeese State University, from which he recently graduated. His time in marching band has had a huge impact on his personality, giving him an outlet to relate to others from different walks of life through shared interests. Finally back home in Houston, Alex is ready to begin his career as a writer.


Alex had always known that he wanted to be a writer, but wasn’t too picky about the type of writing he would end up doing. However, after four years of studying journalism and graduating with a degree in Mass Communication, he found himself learning the ropes of social media and public relations with Compass, and loving it! Since beginning at Compass, Alex has learned so much about different styles of writing, different industries, working as a team, and finding his niche in the industry.
