Tom has been hooked on computers since his family’s first IBM PS/2 Model 30. From there, his interest in computing evolved to include programming (Basic and Turbo C) and hardware upgrades. As Tom got older, he would enter the work force in a similar fashion: delivering software technical support services and working in QA and eventually product management. This led to Tom being a part of a team that eventually turning around failing software product to the tune of triple-digit revenue growth in three consecutive years; a pretty impressive achievement. Now, Tom joins Devbridge as Managing Director in our Chicago office.
Tom has other passions, too. When he was a kid, he wanted to be a professional ice hockey player for the Chicago Blackhawks, but now he believes that if he were doing anything else professionally, it might be architecture. In work and in life, all Tom needs for inspiration is a group of intelligent people who are committed to solving complex problems to work with. Cuban food also helps.
