TEC Equipment named Successful Dealer

Jason Cannon August 21, 2013

Middle son, Chris, is in sales, an area his father sees him overseeing company-wide with a little more experience.

Youngest son Will is nearing graduation from college and will soon join his father and brothers. And dad already has his office picked out.

“I would love to get him into the operations side. If I could do that, I would have the trifecta,” he says of having all three sons holding management roles in three key areas of responsibility. “I would have hit it right out of the park.”

Regardless of what roles his sons play long-term, there’s only one thing Thompson is more proud of than his dealerships and 800-plus employees.

“I’ve got three great sons,” he says. “I’m a lucky, lucky guy.”
