Thrive Spotlight: Eric Thompson – VP, Cloud Infrastructure

Welcome back to another installment of our “Thrive Spotlight” blog series.

Our featured employee is Eric Thompson, VP of Cloud Infrastructure.  As VP of Cloud Infrastructure, he is responsible for our datacenter operations, backup solutions, and disaster recovery for our clients.  He has had many roles since he started with Thrive as a Tier 1 onsite engineer.

Eric lives in the Boston, Massachusetts area and works out of our Woburn office.  Outside of work, he enjoys spending time with his family skiing, camping, biking, or other outdoor activities.  Like most engineers, he enjoys tinkering with different tech for his house.

Hi Eric!  Can you tell us about your background and how you came to Thrive?

I initially interviewed with Thrive in college and then later interviewed in the original Concord office.  The MSP space seemed like a great way to get exposure to all different technologies and businesses.

Where did you go to school or get training?

I graduated from Bryant College in 2004.  Since attending, the school is now named Bryant University.

What do you most enjoy about working for Thrive?

Thrive is a fast-paced environment and no two days are ever the same.  Technology is everchanging so that keeps any challenges fresh and engaging.  I also enjoy the people I work with at Thrive, they enjoy what they do which makes Thrive a great place to work.

Are there any recent exciting projects at Thrive you can tell us about?

Currently, I am working on modernizing our Cloud offering with VMware NSX-T and VMware Cloud Director.
