Tom specializes in the digital media, healthcare, financial services, and software industries and has placed numerous senior-level candidates, including CEO, CIO, CTO and VP-level executives, into both publically traded and privately held organizations. Tom’s career in executive search was preceded by more than 20 years of operational experience in high-growth, venture backed startups and he was an early, central figure in the bringing to market of multiple technology innovations. His efforts were instrumental in delivering to consumers the first web-based and mobile email products as well as ground-breaking anti-spam and anti-phishing SaaS solutions to the enterprise. He participated in multiple funding events and successful exits, including three startup acquisitions totaling over $200 million prior to his joining XOOM.com, which went public after only 2 years and $10 million raised. XOOM’s IPO in combination with a $250 million secondary offering resulted in 30x returns to investors and led to the company’s acquisition by General Electric (NBC).
In addition, the Company has made several recent high profile C and VP-level global placements at Fitbit, AMEX, SoundCloud, Tibco, Coupang, Kareo, Brandwatch, Zscaler, Finch Living & Mosaic.
