“He’s been awesome. He’s been really good and when I got the job, I got a chance to have a really good conversation with him, and he gave me some great advice of just ‘Be yourself. You got an opportunity to lead, do it the way you think is best’,” Thompson said. “I’ve really tried to take that and run with it because he’s done a great job in his career. To have somebody like that in your corner has been great.”
