GCG brought Tom on as Vice President of Marketing in order to build a full marketing team and to develop marketing strategies to support all business segments.
In both mid-size and large organizations Tom has been successful in utilizing full-range marketing programs to build brands, support sales activities and drive revenue growth. He led the marketing efforts in a highly successful school supply company as they were able to double revenue and maintain profitability by identifying and maximizing funding opportunities. He then participated in the re-branding initiative as they were acquired by School Specialty, the $1B leading school supply distributor. Tom was recruited away to a private equity owned industrial tool distributor where he created and implemented both digital and offline marketing strategies that led to high growth and the sale of the business.
Tom received his bachelor’s degree from The University of Georgia and his MBA from Georgia State University.
