Tom was born into a family deeply immersed in the construction industry for nearly four generations. He grew up around job sites and was fascinated by construction at an early age. With a combination of an innate strength in math and science, a fascination and curiosity for engineering, and a passion for construction – it was inevitable that Tom became the fifth generation to enter into construction.
Tom graduated from Wentworth with a degree in Civil Engineering and earned his MBA from Northeastern. Throughout his 30-year career, he has worked his way through the ranks from a field engineer to an officer of the company. His exposure within multiple roles makes him a well-rounded and thoughtful leader. Tom has a keen ability to zone in on what is important to clients and has developed solid relationships with Dupont Merck, Genzyme, MIT, Boston Properties, Bristol Meyers Squibb, and Northeastern University.
At Commodore, he is responsible for managing the operations of the business. He is thoughtful and methodical when it comes to project approaches balancing client’s needs with the best building practices. He enjoys working with Operations teams to share his knowledge while emphasizing the importance of schedules and project execution. He is a team builder who is passionate about putting the right people in the right positions so they can grow personally and professionally.
Tom is also very committed to finding effective solutions to substance use disorder, specifically opioid addiction. He is a big advocate for helping those within the industry find help and one of the main reasons he endorsed our partnership with the Herren Project.
