Carr, Riggs & Ingram, LLC

0214.Christine-Thompson-0814-EditChristine Thompson is a business development executive at Carr, Riggs & Ingram, LLC, as well as a mother of two adult children. She started a dance company in Fort Lauderdale when her children were young, and after many years of success, sold it and moved to central Florida. This move influenced her decision to start her career over, and Christine went back to what she knew best – sales and marketing.

Growing up, her father owned a successful business in Miami.  Christine watched him start at the bottom working for this company that he eventually bought and grew. When asked what her business philosophies and principles include she said, “You have to be willing to work harder than anyone else and networking is key in business. I learned this skill by watching my father build relationships.”

Christine has taught her daughters that a strong work ethic leads to success.  Her daughter, Jenna, attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. She worked as a server to help support herself and held a part- time, unpaid internship during the day. Jenna’s hard work paid off, and she now works in the fashion industry in the city.

Her younger daughter, Ashley, is a junior at the University of Central Florida (UCF) after graduating high school with her associate’s degree from Eastern Florida State College. Ashley is majoring in exercise science with a minor in business. In addition to her “A” average, she is a member of UCF’s spirit squad, holds a job and is actively involved with Fellowship of Christian Athletes on campus.

“I have taught my daughters that to move ahead, you have to be willing to work harder than anyone else, and both my daughters have exemplified this. Their strong work ethic has led them to much success, and I am proud of all they have accomplished,” Christine said.
