Having spent the earlier part of his career in retail management, George Thompson's first
involvement in recruitment was in 1987, when as Director of a London based plc he was one of
the main driving forces behind the company's diversification into recruitment.
Within a relatively short time the company boasted a high profile client base with companies
such as Glaxo, Carl Zeis, Nikon and many other blue chip names.
George was then headhunted to join Harrison Scott Associates. However, before he joined
Dominic he spent a number of months in the U.S observing the methodology used by the top recruitment
companies. This proved to be the inspiration for Veriqual®.
George plays a major role in every Industry in which the company is involved, but is best
known in the Printing Industry where he has had many articles published and in late 2001 was
voted by Printing World as the 34th most influential person in the whole Industry. In this highly

In 2010, 2011 and 2012 George was voted No 1 in the Printweek Power 100 public vote. In 2014 he achieved the No 1 industry supplier position in the Printweek 100 Public vote.
