Meet Bruce

It has often been said that Bruce Thompson is not afraid of rolling up his sleeves and getting dirty. Whether on a jobsite or just volunteering, he is not afraid of work especially if it is helping others. Maybe that comes from his humble beginning back in rural Montana where life was anything but easy! Bruce is often referred to as a serial entrepreneur because of the variety of businesses he has successfully launched or turned around. Over the years, he has successfully launched an automatic swimming pool cover business, 6 insurance agencies, 3 software companies, 2 construction related companies, and 2 investment holdings.

Currently Bruce Thompson is a Senator representing District 14 which includes Bartow, Cherokee and Cobb counties. Elected in 2013, Senator Thompson immediately rolled up his sleeves and began utilizing his business experience to make Georgia a better place to live and work.

Over the past 7 years in the Senate, he has served as the Chairman of Science and Technology, Veterans, Military, and Homeland Security, and 

currently chairs Economic Development and Tourism.

Additionally, Senator Thompson has chaired several important study committees on cyber security and traveled the country meeting with experts in this field. He has authored several pieces of legislation that have become law and is credited with fighting to establish the GBI Forensic Crime Lab in Augusta as a result of SR 360. A strong proponent of fiscal responsibility also led Thompson to ensure that Georgia secured Cyber Insurance to provide the necessary protection against the ever-growing cyber-attacks on the state’s resources.

Possibly it is his  security clearance his strong business knowledge, or maybe it is his entrepreneurial experience that causes the Senate to often refer to the Senator as their resident cyber expert! Other committees that Bruce currently serves on include Appropriations, Banking and Financial Institutions, Finance, and Military, Veterans, and Homeland Security.

Although credited with many business and political accolades, his biggest accomplishments are raising his two children, Faith (20) and Max (16) alongside his wife of 24 years, Becky.
