Tom’s Story
Express Rate
Tom completed a business degree from the University of Kansas—which complemented the customer service skills he mastered at FedEx. While he was looking to grow career-wise, an investor in Tom’s family pointed him toward HomeAdvisor because of its explosive growth. Tom agreed the company was special, so he stepped away from shipping to embrace selling.

What Tom Does
Vice President Of Sales
Tom’s role involves facilitation, so rather than run a specific morning huddle, he rotates between them to keep everyone on pace. By focusing on a few initiatives at once, Tom tailors short-term goals to the team to help the region succeed. Then, when he isn’t promoting what HomeAdvisor does, he helps bring in more winning talent.
