Peggy Thompson, Founder
Peggy Thompson has 15+ years' experience as an executive recruiter producing outstanding results for private venture technology firms nationwide.
After graduating from Baylor University with a business degree in finance and computer information systems, Peggy began her career as a COBOL programmer. From there, Peggy transitioned into a top producing sales executive delivering big-ticket, complex software solutions to the Fortune 500. She joined her first technology startup in the 1990's where she helped to define the go-to-market strategy and sales model and recruit the company's first VP Sales and Marketing.
Peggy then co-founded Tricom Group, building it into a multi-million dollar executive search firm before founding Summative in 2002. Today, Summative is a leading small boutique retained executive recruiting firm specializing in C-level, VP, and Board searches for private venture technology companies. Leveraging herself with other smart recruiters and contractors she's personally trained, Summative consistently delivers exceptional results to a select group of distinguished clients.
Peggy enjoys working with private venture technology investors and CEOs - from angel to exit - to build shareholder wealth for her clients and the executives she places. Clients have included Tradex (acquired by Ariba for $1.86 billion), EqualLogic (acquired by Dell for $1.4 billion), Aprimo (acquired by Teradata for $525 million), PentaSafe (acquired by NetIQ for $255 million), Initiate Systems (acquired by IBM), and OpenPages (acquired by IBM).
Peggy is married, has two sons, and enjoys a robust family life. She loves music and is involved in her community and church. In her spare time, she has fun coaching entrepreneurs and judging business plan competitions.

"Peggy Thompson is a smart, aggressive recruiter who consistently delivers the results I expect. ince 1998, she and her team have managed over 60 searches within Sigma's portfolio. Peggy's track record speaks for itself and has earned my confidence in her ability to attract the exceptional executives I seek to recruit."
"Peggy is the best that I have ever seen."
"Peggy Thompson is not only an excellent recruiter, but she is also a great salesman.Working as a team, we convinced a skeptical early-stage technology CEO living in Florida to move his family to Houston to take the VP Marketing position with PentaSafe.
"One of the highlights of my year was working with Peggy to find my replacement as founding CEO. eggy not only made the process enjoyable, but she had the insight to truly understand our company dynamics. he achieved fast, effective results and we definitely recruited and have retained the best executive in the country for the job. He is great and Peggy is great!."
"Peggy Thompson takes a unique approach to recruiting.Early-stage, recently funded companies often lack comprehensive market positioning and messaging.
"I want to thank Peggy for her perseverance, steady-handedness, and professionalism with this search. Peggy: you are truly in league by yourself!"
