Power Players: Inner Circle

Brian W. Thompson

Brian W. Thompson heads the leading small business lender in Central Massachusetts and the biggest Worcester-headquartered bank -- with $1.7 billion in deposits -- but it is his community connections that make him so intertwined with the business community.

Rarely does anything happen in the Central Massachusetts business community that he doesn't know about or have a hand in. Thompson is on the Becker College Board of Trustees, as well as on the boards of the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Worcester Regional Research Bureau, the Worcester Economic Club, the United Way of Central Massachusetts and the Massachusetts Bankers Association.

Even with his easy-going nature, Thompson has led Commerce Bank to new heights in a competitive banking environment, growing its number of locations by 33 percent and making it the leading local financial institution in Central Massachusetts.
