Capstone Associated Services, Ltd. has expanded into the southwestern United States with the addition of Phoenix-based Clete Thompson, vice president of business development. Mr. Thompson previously served as Capstone's director of sales and marketing, returning to the organization following a 4-year hiatus. Mr. Thompson has over 20 years of executive sales and marketing experience at both Fortune 500 and middle-market companies.

"We're excited to welcome Clete back to Capstone," commented Stewart A. Feldman, CEO. "Clete has deep knowledge of the captive insurance industry, and a keen ability to establish lasting business relationships—qualities that bolster Capstone's existing multidisciplinary team. In general, Capstone has long-recognized the critical risk coverage and financial needs of mid-market businesses. With the addition of Clete, Capstone will continue to expand and educate business owners on the benefits of captive and alternative risk planning while maintaining existing relationships."

Prior to his initial tenure at Capstone, Mr. Thompson developed his marketing expertise in the mortgage lending and fast-evolving financial technology industry, where he was responsible for managing postacquisition rebranding initiatives for two top national lenders. As director of marketing for a national mortgage company, he was successful in developing large-scale customer acquisition and client retention programs for the company's retail branches.

Mr. Thompson began his career in sales and marketing at a Chicago-based public relations services firm, where he established and managed client relationships with dozens of Fortune 500 advertisers. He also taught marketing and consumer behavior at Loyola University Chicago in 2003.
