Capstone Associated Services, Ltd. is proud to announce that it has expanded into the U.S. southwestern region, with the addition of Clete Thompson, MBA, a 7-year veteran with Capstone.

Mr. Thompson returns to Capstone as Vice President of Business Development, where he previously served as Director of Sales & Marketing, after a four-year hiatus. Mr. Thompson is a seasoned sales and marketing executive with over 20 years of experience at both Fortune 500 and middle-market companies.

“We’re excited to welcome Clete back to Capstone,” commented Stewart A. Feldman, CEO. “Clete has deep knowledge of the captive insurance industry, and a keen ability to establish lasting business relationships—qualities that bolster Capstone’s existing multidisciplinary team. In general, Capstone has long-recognized the critical risk coverage and financial needs of mid-market businesses. With the addition of Clete, Capstone will continue to expand and educate business owners on the benefits of captive and alternative risk planning while maintaining existing relationships.”

Prior to his initial tenure at Capstone, Mr. Thompson developed his marketing expertise in the mortgage lending and fast-evolving Fintech industry where he was responsible for managing post-acquisition rebranding initiatives for two top national lenders.

Prior to his first tour with Capstone, Mr. Thompson had served as Director of Marketing for a national mortgage company, where he was responsible for a host of revenue-driving, business-to-business marketing programs. Mr. Thompson was successful in developing large-scale customer acquisition and client retention programs for the company's retail branches.

Mr. Thompson began his career as Director of Sales and Marketing at a Chicago-based public relations services firm, where he established and managed client relationships with dozens of Fortune 500 advertisers. He also taught marketing and consumer behavior at Loyola University Chicago in 2003.

This experience has positioned Mr. Thompson to again make a significant impact at Capstone. Based in Phoenix, AZ, Mr. Thompson’s reach throughout the Southwest ensures that businesses in a variety of industries in the region can mitigate risks while promoting better financial efficiency.
