Thompson, a Retired Brigadier General, Brings Strategic Leadership to the Employment Screening Company

Thompson as president of the company. Proforma Screening Solutions offers comprehensive employment screening services to mitigate risk and inform better hiring decisions for today’s human capital-driven organizations.

Thompson is a graduate of the U.S. Army War College and held increasingly high-level operational and strategic planning positions during his thirty-year Army career, including battlefield command.
“Few industries understand the value of human capital better than the military. As employers turn to Proforma Screening Solutions to inform their hiring decisions, I look forward to helping these customers effectively apply background data through the lens of risk management, compliance, and organizational strategy,” Thompson remarks.
In his most recent Army positon, Thompson was Director of the Rebalance Task Force and Deputy Director for Strategy and Policy in the U.S. Pacific Command. In these roles, he was responsible for the strategic planning and policy efforts in support of the President’s rebalance toward the Asia Pacific.
