Cline Thompson is a Vice President and Compliance Officer for BBVA Compass Bank, headquartered in Birmingham. Originally from Hartselle, AL, he graduated from the University of Alabama in 2010 with a Political Science degree, and then earned his J.D. from Cumberland School of Law at Samford University in 2013. During law school Cline worked in a variety of fields, clerking for the Hare, Wynn, Newell, and Newton law firm, before venturing into the sports industry. In 2012 Cline worked in Minor League Baseball for the Huntsville Stars, the Double-A affiliate of the Milwaukee Brewers. Later that year he started working as a Compliance Assistant in the UAB Athletic Department.
Following his education, Cline moved to Nashville, TN and worked the 2013-14 season with the Nashville Predators of the National Hockey League (NHL). He was a Sales Associate, selling Season, Group, and Corporate ticket packages for the team, as well as assisting the Legal Department with various tasks. Immediately following that season, he was hired by the Huntsville Havoc of the Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) as Director of Ticket Sales. Cline served in that role for two years, overseeing the team’s overall ticket strategy and operation.
While Director, he forged partnerships with both the University of Alabama in Huntsville and the University of North Alabama, creating an internship program to give students hands-on experience in the sports industry. In his second season with the Havoc, the team set a league-wide record for attendance, and a team record for number of sellouts in a season. Following the 2015-16 season, Cline moved to Birmingham and began his work at BBVA Compass corporate headquarters.
Cline volunteers with numerous organizations. For eleven years, he has been on staff with the American Legion Alabama Boys State program.
