William Thompson, P.E.

Chairman, Senior Vice President, Electrical Engineer

William Thompson

Mr. Thompson has worked with electrical power, control and communications systems since 1968. His career began in the eastern Missouri underground mining industry, starting as an electrician and, following graduation from the University of Missouri Rolla in 1970, advancing to engineer and supervisor. He also served a three year term in the Army as an officer with the Strategic Communications Command at Ft. Huachuca, Arizona working on national and global communications projects.

He joined the firm in 1976 and worked as a staff engineer in the substation department. He began managing projects in 1978 and advanced to department and division manager, working on and managing numerous substation, SCADA, and communication projects for many clients. Early and continuing work in substation design resulted in a more standardized design and process as well as hundreds of completed substations. His control systems background prompted an interest in SCADA systems and he helped several clients establish their initial systems. His military experience with communications also propelled him to become the communications lead for the firm as he developed and expanded several clients microwave, LMR and fiber systems.

Bill has served as a director since 1988, President from 2001 until 2012, and Chairman from 2012 to present. "My greatest career pleasure is working closely with clients to transform their needs and ideas into a practical facility providing useful function for many years."
