Ron-ThompsonRon Thompson Jr. has been named the new chair of the Arizona Technology Council’s Phoenix CEO Network. In his regular career, Thompson is Senior Vice President – Western US at DataBank IMX, one of the largest enterprise document management solution companies in North America.

“Ron is a genuine, down-to-earth business leader with a passion for helping organizations, employees and customers succeed,” says 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 CEO Network assembles business leaders to address current issues facing their company using a peer-to-peer board of advisors model. The group provides a confidential, non-competitive environment for sharing experience-based knowledge to solve business problems faced by every CEO.

Thompson will leverage his considerable business acumen to meet the Council’s mission of creating a forum where business leaders can discuss current challenges and receive trusted advice from their peers. “As a longtime member of this and similar associations, peer advisory has become a huge passion of mine,” says 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, former CEO of OSAM Document Solutions, specializes in leadership effectiveness and process improvement. As a trusted advisor for many organizations within the business and government community, he often speaks of OSAM’s core foundation, Three Pillars of Success: Accountability, Process and Culture.

The Phoenix CEO Network 2015 sessions occur the second week of each month on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, based on the number of networks. For more information, please email Leigh Goldstein at
