Leader. Teacher. Fighter. Leader: As our premier media maven, with 25+ years of experience, Tom leads our growing media department and oversees its expanding roster of capabilities: research, planning, buying, analytics, programmatic and telepathic. Teacher: As a professor at Kent State, he taught up-and-coming generations the fundamentals of media and more. It was a “tremendous experience,” one he plans to someday revisit. Fighter: For a few years, Tom worked as a professional wrestler on the side, competing in the independent circuits. Besides the sheer thrill of it all, the experience paid off for his “day job” as it unleashed his inner extrovert. He still wipes his feet before entering any building—a habit he picked up from his wrestling gigs.
