Rod Madden has been central to Thompson Morris's strategic direction, expansion efforts and long-term growth strategy. 

In a career spanning over40 years, Rod has amassed extensive management experience in all aspects of real estate development, including land acquisition, entitlement, horizontal and vertical development, asset management and asset disposition of a multitude of products, including single family subdivisions, condominiums, multi-family, retail strip centers, civic buildings and office buildings. Rod’s experience rivals any in the industry.

In 1972, Rod received his real estate license and began his career in the industry.  In 1986, Rod joined Nash Phillips Copus in their commercial real estate division where he became responsible for disposition of commercial land and single family lots post development.

By June of 1987, recognizing the great value in these depressed assets, Rod started a multifaceted land acquisition and development company concentrating primarily in single-family lots as well as light commercial and multi-family development. Rod has been involved as the primary developer on more than 5,000 lots in the Austin Metro Area with total revenues on those projects in excess of $250,000,000.00, and the construction of over 350,000 sq. ft. of commercial properties.



An innovative and forward-thinking leader, Todd Madden’s career is distinguished by an extensive background that encompasses project management, finance, operations, and strategic planning across a broad base of industries that range from real estate and construction, to software and defense.

As the President of Thompson Morris, Todd Madden is responsible for the Finance, Accounting, Administration, Marketing, Human Resources, Legal, and Investor Relations teams, leveraging experience gained during a successful 15-year career in leadership positions within both public firms and entrepreneurial organizations.

Specifically, Todd spent the first few years of his business career as a financial analyst in the real estate and construction industry, where he was responsible for model generation, financial forecasting and reporting.  Leveraging his financial and management skills, Todd began a ten year career with Ultra Electronics, where he managed over $70MM in defense system deliveries to both US and international customers.  During this time, Todd gained extensive experience in negotiations, business development and project management. In 2014, he re-entered the real estate industry as the President & COO of Thompson Morris.

Todd’s passion for due diligence in acquisition and development, as well as his keen insights for enriching value, make him a valued asset to Thompson Morris.
