2021 HW Woman of Influence: Kamini Lane

Lane leads all agent-facing operations of the company across Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego and Hawaii.

While the real estate market faced a slowdown last spring due to COVID-19, Compass agents and employees were able to navigate the uncertainty and emerge stronger thanks to Kamini Lane’s leadership. As President of Compass’ West Region, Lane’s work bettered the lives of thousands of real estate entrepreneurs and her efforts last year guided them to deliver a record-breaking year of sales across California. Lane is a seasoned operations, marketing and brand leader with a passion for driving sustainable growth and building world-class teams. Last November, she was promoted to the role of west region president after previously serving as Compass’ regional president of Southern California.

In her new role, Lane leads all agent-facing operations of the company across major western markets such as Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, San Diego and Hawaii. Lane’s leadership style centers around three key tenets: clarity, transparency and authenticity. Not only does she embody each of these qualities but she has also created a culture that celebrates employees for doing the same. Lane is driven by the goal of creating space for people to be their authentic selves in the workplace. Additionally, Lane has dedicated her professional life to improving the workplace for women. She exemplifies this by mentoring women rising in their own careers at Compass and from previous jobs.
