"We are focused on being involved in projects and partnerships that have a positive impact on the community they serve."
"Having your team working for me lets me focus on my business."
John Thompson and Paul Thrift began laying plans for their future business partnership while attending Indiana State University. Those plans came to fruition in 1986 with the founding of Thompson Thrift. Since that time, Thompson Thrift has grown from a locally focused real estate development company into an integrated, full-service development and construction company with a national scope. As the company continues to grow, it has retained an engaged and active presence in Terre Haute and the Wabash Valley. Thompson Thrift's ongoing positive impact on the city is evident in projects as wide ranging as the Terre Haute Children's Museum, 925 Wabash office building, Hilton Garden Inn, Candlewood Suites, Honey Creek Commons, Towne South and Sycamore Terrace Apartments. Thompson Thrift's commitment to service, quality and trust has been and will remain a hallmark of the company as it moves forward into the future.
Thompson Thrift's distinctive business philosophy stems from John and Paul's embrace of the principles of "servant leadership." In this management philosophy, servant-leaders achieve results for their organizations by giving priority attention to the needs of their colleagues and those they serve. Their dedication to these principles is apparent in John and Paul's commitment to serving their client-partners, their colleagues and the communities in which they live and work.
