Hi, my name is Tom, I’m a dad of two adorable daughters named Nicole and Athena and husband to an amazing woman named Paula. I’m also Sr. Vice President and Partner at Canada’s largest independent Internet Marketing Agency based in the Greater Toronto Area.
My educational background includes a BA in Political Science, but even more meaningful to me have been truly exceptional business experiences. From working in my Fathers service company every summer to starting a bottled water company, owning and operating a national coffee franchisee, marketing at Bell Canada, developing new products for Canada’s Yellow Pages to joining an 8 person startup SEO company in Toronto which now numbers over 80 professionals and growing. Today, my experiences and the people I’ve met have truly made my business career so much more rewarding.
People are my fuel! While my business experiences have been varied, what I’m feel most fortunate about are the many mentors, peers, staff, customers, investors and suppliers who have helped me understand business better than any classroom! In my current challenge, I have been able to recruit, mentor and develop a team of people that I learn from daily. They inspire me and make me proud! Its a true blessing!
In this blog, I’ll focus on bringing common sense advice in Marketing, Traditional Advertising, Search Engine Optimization, Local Search, Paid Search, Social Media, Sales, Management and Customer Service issues affecting Small and Medium sized Business owners.
