About Brian Thompson
Brian has more than three decades of experience in finance, accounting, and operations. After gaining great experience working in his father’s accounting firm, Brian worked as lead accountant for several CPA firms. He then opened his own accounting practice in 1986, eventually consulting as a CFO in many industries including construction, service, retail, and education and manufacturing.
Brian’s core leadership values are:
1. Integrity, which he defines as “doing what I say I will do, in the time frame I agreed to, and in the way it is meant to be done.”
2. “Cause in the Matter” a phrase that relates to our ability to choose our future. Transformation in a business is not just about the numbers. You have to know what creates the numbers, and what the numbers create.
Brian holds a Master’s degree in Sociology, an MBA in Finance, and is a Doctoral Candidate in Organizational Leadership. He has the experience and education to objectively analyze a company’s business plan, model, and structure. If a company doesn’t have a business plan, he’ll guide and help develop one that is practical and relevant.
