Compliance Manager

Josh Beardsley

Why PASS? I came to PASS to sharpen my campaign finance compliance abilities and for the company’s work culture. The small business structure allows my coworkers and me the ability to grow and support each other as we complete our tasks.

My Background: Before coming to PASS, I worked to help Army contracting offices find small business to support their needs. Prior to working in government contracts, I had the pleasure of serving in the Army as a Platoon Leader stationed in the Republic of Korea and an Executive Officer stationed in Fort Jackson, South Carolina.

About Me: I am an Army brat, who was born in the District of Columbia at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. I grew up on both coasts of the US and in Texas although I call Maryland home. After graduating High School in Olney, MD, I attended Norwich University in Northfield, VT where I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a BA in Criminal Justice with a focus in Sociology and Military Studies. I played baseball during my time at Norwich and served as the Corps of Cadet’s Chaplain’s Aid helping to coordinate Roman Catholic Mass and lead the Knights of Columbus on campus. Nowadays I enjoy playing music and spending time in nature during my time away from work.
