    Meet Cindy Thompson

    Account Manager

    Joining Brooks in December of 2017, Cindy hit the ground running in her new position with the Sales Team. Having a long, interesting past in sales, Cindy spent a number of years representing a high-end Honduran custom door company in the United States. Hand-carved and one-of-a-kind, these doors were made of Honduran mahogany, making them very exclusive and very expensive—she sold a set of two 12’ doors once for $30,000! She also worked for a kitchen equipment company, as a National Account Manager, helping customers meet their cooking equipment needs.

    Coming from these industries has helped make Cindy competitive and self-motivated, two traits that serve her well here at Brooks. As an Account Manager for Brooks, she works hard interacting and building relationships with her customers. Relations built on trust, which Cindy believes, “helps build business.” She appreciates getting to know her customers on a personal level, too, “I’m genuinely interested in not only their business but their families and what they do outside of work—I have formed friendships with a lot of them,” she says.

    Outside of work, Cindy has a host of things keeping her busy. She has three daughters (30, 28, and 27) and four grandchildren (10, 8, 2, and 10 months), whom she absolutely loves spending time with. Self-described as a “HUGE Kid Rock fan” as well, Cindy has accumulated some serious frequent flyer miles going to see him all over the country—sometimes twice a year! She just returned from a cruise in the Caribbean too. She had so much fun; she’s counting the days to the next one—Mediterranean anyone? And last, but certainly not least, she loves to cook. One of her favorite dishes—escargot. Cindy, your family, concerts, and cruises sound great. But I’d have to take a hard pass on the snails.
