David Thompson founded EdgePoint after more than 15 years of experience in Washington, DC. David served in the George W. Bush White House and worked for a top lobbying and consulting firm in Washington where he developed strong networks on Capitol Hill and across the federal agencies. Before that, David worked at Fox News for Hannity and Colmes and the O’Reilly Factor in New York City.
Over the years, David has built and managed strong teams and books of business providing a full suite of consulting services in the areas of cybersecurity, defense, intelligence, homeland security, healthcare, education, international joint ventures, real estate ventures, and others. David’s government skill sets are industry-agnostic. Rather, it is in understanding the “formula of government” and how to make it work for his clients. David’s experience working in the defense and intelligence communities provides rare insight into opportunities that are “off the beaten path.” David also maintains strong relationships in the private equity, foundation and non-profit communities that augment his ability to service EdgePoint’s clients effectively.
