While no one likely grows up wanting to work with qualified plans, Tom has found interacting with plan sponsors and plan participants to be a gratifying, rewarding way to spend the last twenty plus years of his professional life.
By getting to know a business and business owner, Tom strives to identify and implement an appropriate and beneficial plan design. By being available to the employees, he shows people that retirement goals can be achieved. Surrounded by a strong team, Tom supports the needs of over 100 corporate clients and almost 11,000 participants served by SYM.
Tom is grateful for every opportunity he has to spend time with his wife of 23 years, Jen, and two school age daughters, Baylee and Reganne. When he's not attending his children's events, he enjoys working in his yard, gardening, reading and birdwatching.
As the parents of two adopted daughters, Tom and his wife have spoken publicly numerous times on the topic and welcome the opportunity to share the impact and blessing of their own experiences.
