Jim Thompson has amassed nearly 40 years of experience working in the financial field. Starting his career in 1980 with Newport Balboa Savings in California, Thompson has grown significantly since that first role as vice president. He’s worked with various financial firms, from mortgage focused businesses to well-rounded agencies. For 22 years, he grew with the Dallas company ORIX USA, becoming its president and CEO in the last decade of work there. He helped ORIX grow to more than 1,400 employees, assets exceeding $5 billion and third party managed assets of $28 billion. These successes led Jim Thompson to open his own financial business in early 2014 -- Preston Hollow Capital, LLC. He has served as the company’s founder, CEO and chairman since that time, including currently as it surpasses equity capital of $1 billion.
