Peggy Thompson, Managing Partner and 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 define the go-to-market and sales models 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 and enjoys a robust family life. She loves music and is involved in her community and church. In her spare time, she coaches entrepreneurs and mentors recent college grads.

Peggy Thompson is a smart, aggressive recruiter who consistently delivers the results I expect. Since 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.
I have worked with Peggy on venture capital and private equity investments over many years. She is a smart, hardworking recruiter and a great pleasure to work with.
I found the Ifbyphone experience with Peggy Thompson and the Summative team unique. While working with executive search organizations in the past it was never clear who they represented, my company, the candidate, themselves. The Summative process is focused with laser precision on sourcing and closing the best possible new employee for your company. I highly recommend Peggy and Summative.
One of the highlights of my year was working with Peggy to find my replacement as founding CEO. Peggy not only made the process enjoyable, but she had the insight to truly understand our company dynamics. She 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. Peggy develops the positioning and messaging her clients.
Peggy Thompson and Summative understand the unique requirements of fast-growing private venture technology companies.

Peggy Thompson, Summative's Managing Partner and Founder, knows that CEOs with low Accommodating scores are better able to focus on priorities vital to success when making decisions.
Peggy has found that Numerical Ability is a reflection of intelligence.
Although Peggy's heard countless stories about how difficult private venture CEOs can be to work with, she has personally seen the benefits these CEOs deliver to fast-growing technology companies.
