In his role as Sr. Director, Enterprise Business Development, JT will be an invaluable resource for helping retailers and manufacturers streamline asset development by leveraging DreamView’s remarkable 3D services and platform.
Thompson will report to VP of Sales, Kevin Varieur, who joined DreamView in May to help improve revenue-generating operations, expand into new industries, and position the company as an outstanding partner for clients seeking to evolve their 3D content strategy.

JT: “What initially intrigued me about DreamView was that a group of charismatic leaders with arguably the strongest CGI pedigree in the world have created the means to marry existing best practices and ingenious new processes into the industry’s most technically advanced Platform as a Service. What convinced me to join, however, was the people. This company is made up of a very diverse collection of some of the most passionate people I’ve ever had the privilege of working with. I am truly inspired by the working environment and culture to accomplish the best work of my career. What else can be said but ‘Watch out, here we come!'”
