Bio

Bruce lives in Cartersville, Georgia with his wife Rebecca (Becky), daughter Faith and son Maxwell. Although credited with many business and political accolades over the years, Bruce's biggest accomplishments are raising his two children alongside his wife of 24 years, Becky. Bruce's desire to serve others has led him to work extensively with various non-profit organizations, including Hickory Log (a local homeless shelter), Advocates for Children (which provides services for women and children who are victims of abuse and neglect), Goshen Valley (provides services and counseling for foster children and vulnerable families), and many others. He is currently an owner in Quoteburst, Lifecycle, Textwave, Strong Tower Development, Bruce Thompson Enterprises, and Providential Development and Consulting. The words "Bruce Thompson is afraid of work" have never been uttered. You are as likely to find Bruce on a jobsite, rolling up his sleeves and grabbing a shovel, or assisting at a homeless shelter, as you are to find him in the boardroom. Raised on a Montana farm, where life was anything but easy, Bruce learned early the value of hard work, and for Bruce, hard work is never more rewarding than when done in the service of others. That service to others extended to his nation, where after attending college on a wrestling scholarship, Bruce served for four years in the U.S. Army as a tank commander. After serving in the Army, Bruce became a serial entrepreneur, launching multiple successful small businesses, as well as acquiring other failing businesses and turning them around. At just 10-years old, Bruce launched his first business venture, selling fresh milk from the farm to local school bus drivers. When he turned 22, he launched The Thompson Group in South Florida to provide tenant improvements to 11 shopping centers. After serving in the Army, Bruce became a serial entrepreneur, launching multiple successful small businesses, as well as acquiring other failing businesses and turning them around. After serving in the Army, Bruce became a serial entrepreneur, launching multiple successful small businesses, as well as acquiring other failing businesses and turning them around. Since then, Bruce has successfully started 2 automatic swimming pool cover businesses that grew to become the largest in the Southeast prior to being acquired in 2018. In 2007, he formed The Thompson Insurance Group from scratch, and over the next 9 years grew it to six offices with more than $10 million in annual premiums. Along the way, Bruce's achievements have been recognized with numerous awards, and many invitations to speak at leadership conferences. In 2008, he co-founded Quoteburst, a software company which automates quoting activities for the insurance industry. With over 40 million quotes currently processed by the company, it is no wonder why it has become the largest and premier quoting solution choice for more than 4,000 agencies. Originally serving as the company's CMO, Bruce later served as its COO before rising to his current position as CEO of Quoteburst. Bruce also co-founded a targeted texting company that successfully delivered 22 million texts in one month to educate voters on a referendum issue. He is also the founder of Strong Tower Development, an investment and holding company which has built a funeral home, a center for small businesses and, in keeping with his passion for serving those in need, Strong Tower Development has also built affordable housing for single moms and their children.
