CEO @ World Wide Web Hosting, LLC
Tom has been instrumental in the day to day success and operation of Site5! As the COO he has made sure that everything is running correctly at the company and he never lets anything slip by or go unnoticed. His attention to detail is superhuman!
President @ World Wide Web Hosting, LLC
Tom has ably handled responsibilities and problems relating to every aspect of the web hosting industry. He has a rare ability to see problems from technical, strategic, and interpersonal perspectives. Despite that broad vision, he still manages to keeps track of all the little details.
Former CEO @ Site5.com
Hiring Tom was one of the best decisions I ever made at Site5, plain and simple. Prior to selling the company, I worked closely with Tom on a daily basis. He was not only Site5’s COO, but he was my right hand man. He is organized and efficient, extremely hard working, and was always willing to tackle anything we presented him with. His skillset is diverse and always expanding. He is a true professional, and a great asset to his company.
CTO @ World Wide Web Hosting, LLC
The impact Tom has made as COO at Site5 is immeasurable. He knows the web hosting industry inside and out and that wealth of knowledge and experience is a huge asset to Site5. I cannot imagine what Site5 would be like without him.
Chief Software Developer @ World Wide Web Hosting, LLC
From the beginning I was thoroughly impressed with his attention to detail. He is quick to understand a problem even if he’s not familiar with the underlying technology. This is a rare trait that makes him a huge asset to our company.
VP of R&D @ World Wide Web Hosting, LLC
He’s the perfect amount of involved and uninvolved all at once, exactly in the right place at the right time just a fraction of a second before you even realize you needed him for something!
VP of Systems @ World Wide Web Hosting, LLC
Tom easily does the work of a handful of employees, and maintains an excellent, fun, but assertive attitude while doing so. You can always rely on Tom to ensure a plethora of tasks are organized and completed, even with the tightest of time frames.
Former VP of Customer Service @ World Wide Web Hosting, LLC
Great leader. Amazing mentor. Incredibly detail oriented and focused. Patient and understanding. He is capable of mentoring anyone that comes his way. Whether it be from a first day customer service agent, to a Vice President needing advice. His biggest quality is that he will always be there for you, whether it be professionally or on a personal level.
