Exclusive peer-to-peer group of CEOs and presidents help each other solve business challenges
PHOENIX, Arizona, January 6, 2015
The Arizona Technology Council today announced that Ron Thompson Jr., DataBank senior vice president, U.S. West and former CEO of OSAM Document Solutions, has been named chair for the Arizona Technology Council Phoenix CEO Network effective immediately. Thompson will leverage his considerable business experience and acumen to continue the Council’s mission of creating a forum where business leaders can discuss current challenges and receive trusted advice from their peers.
“Ron is a genuine, down-to-earth business leader with a passion for helping organizations, employees and customers succeed,” said Steven G. Zylstra, president and CEO of the Arizona Technology Council. “We’re privileged to have him accept the reigns of this exclusive group of technology leaders that is so highly-regarded by our members.”
The Arizona Technology Council’s CEO Network uses a peer-to-peer board of advisors model and assembles business leaders to address current issues facing their company. This group provides a confidential, non-competitive environment for sharing experience-based knowledge to solve business problems faced by every CEO.
“As a longtime member of this and similar associations, peer advisory has become a huge passion of mine,” said Thompson. “At some point, CEOs have all been faced with difficult decisions and have turned to our close network for support. I believe it is a great opportunity to not only receive and share advice, but network at a higher level while growing professionally.”
Thompson specializes in leadership effectiveness and process improvement. He is a trusted advisor for many organizations within the business and government community and often speaks on OSAM’s core foundation, “The Three Pillars of Success: Accountability, Process and Culture.”
In addition to being active in the Council’s CEO Network since 2009 and Vistage International since 2008, Thompson has served as president and member-at-large for the Independent Information Management Dealership Association (IIMDA) and a chairperson of the Canon U.S.A. Dealer Council.
