Peter Thompson

As a CEO and Civic Leader, Peter Thompson has been around many blocks—from finance to politics, philanthropy to academia—and everywhere in between. Bloomberg Business and CNBC have sought his financial commentary. He has led teams, advised executives, recruited top notch talent and driven success. Peter has also endured challenges, embraced his failures and learned from them.

His love of rich personal connection, combined with management and leadership skills, have led to a robust network of truly close, personal relationships. His professional and civic experience, unique family lineage and life experiences helped him to easily and enjoyably build this network with people of all walks of life.

Peter Thompson founded Magis Leadership Advisors because he flat out loves people. His passion, drive and ambition come from the desire to connect people to other people, companies and resources to create a deeper and richer world for themselves, their businesses, families and communities.

“Peter Thompson is a born leader who is brilliant supporting the success of others. His honesty, sharp mind and easy way of relating make him a natural for bringing people together towards a common goal. Peter has consistently positively impacted the careers of many leaders and helped many organizations exceed their goals.”
