Thieman is the Henry Buhl, Jr. Chair for Civic Leadership with the Buhl Foundation, Pittsburgh's oldest multi-purpose foundation, where he served as its sixth president between 2007 and 2016. Previously, Thieman was the United States Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania. Appointed by then-President Clinton, he served in the post from 1993 to 1997, where he headed an office of 42 attorneys who both prosecuted criminal violations throughout Western Pennsylvania and handled civil litigation ranging from health care issues and tort liability to employment rights and environmental impact. While serving in the position, Thieman was instrumental in establishing a youth crime prevention effort in Allegheny County that garnered national attention.
