David is the Founder, CEO & President of Thompson. He was determined to differentiate the company from the rest of the pack in a crowded market. As a devout man of faith, he dedicated his company to God. The original business plan was a scripture from the Old Testament, Proverbs 3:5-6, which says, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths”. With a focus on quality, service, and speed, Thompson quickly began to grow.
Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, David joined the Air Force in 1978 and served honorably for six years as a Computer Programmer. After being discharged, he worked in the Staffing industry over the next 15 years in various positions.
David is married to Lori, his childhood sweetheart from 7th grade. The couple has been married for over forty years and resides in Canton, Georgia. They have three grown children and seven grandchildren. In their free time, David and Lori enjoy spending time with the family and traveling.
