This method has become the standard of care in GA and is now used in virtually every operating room in the country.

In 2002, David founded VEININNOVATIONS as the first facility of its kind in Atlanta to offer every available technique for the treatment of venous insufficiency and varicose/spider veins.

As the managing partner, Thomson began his tenure when Proof was a small boutique caterer with just one exclusive contract, The Carter Presidential Center.  When he sold his interest in the company in 2013 and turned over the reins to his main partner’s son, Proof had become a much more varied food service management company specializing in off premise catering; exclusive contracts in business, convention, sports, concert, and resort venues; an airport kiosk food concept; and a Gourmet to Go division that provides creative culinary products to go. Thomson now serves as a marketing consultant for Proof, and the company continues to be highly regarded in the Atlanta business and social community as it grows and prospers in this new era of leadership.

Thomson is also the owner of Atlanta’s oldest restaurant, Pittypat’s Porch, an authentic, southern­themed 300 seat restaurant located in the heart of downtown.

He has recently overseen and completed a major face lift and renovation that includes an outdoor porch and southern mansion façade.

Prior to joining Proof of the Pudding, Thomson served as the senior vice president of the Georgia Hospitality and Travel Association (GHTA), the trade association representing Georgia’s food service, lodging and travel industries and related businesses. During his career with GHTA, he served in various capacities with responsibilities in membership sales and services, educational programming, and operation of the Southeastern Hospitality and Food Service Show and Atlanta International Wine Festival. Thomson moved to Atlanta in 1977 as general manager for Victoria Station Restaurants, a California based specialty restaurant chain.

Thomson has served as the Chairman of the Southeastern Chapter of the National Association of Exposition Managers (NAEM), and has earned the Certified Exposition Managers’ designation. He is a member of the Advisory Board and past Chairman of the Board of The Atlanta Community Food Bank’s ‘Atlantas’ Table,’ an organization that collects prepared but not served food from restaurants and other food service operation and distributes it to the agencies that feed the homeless and hungry of Atlanta. Thomson also serves on the boards of the Atlanta Convention and Visitors Bureau, and Georgia State University School of Hospitality.

An active Member of the Ansley Golf Club for many years, Thomson has recently completed a term of service on the Club’s Board of Directors and had a significant leadership role in a major renovation of its food and beverage facilities. He and his wife Deb, a successful retail executive, are devoted members of the Holy Family Catholic Church where they live in the East Cobb section of Marietta.
