Tom, your love for golf is well-known. Since when have you been playing golf and how do you manufacture time for it?
I’ve played golf since college and have met so many unbelievable people, explored so many amazing places around the world, and had incredible experiences enjoying the game of golf. With offices in NY, Boston, San Francisco, Seattle, London, Dublin, and Singapore, I have the opportunity to play with team members, partners, and clients once in a while. When I’m not working, I pick vacation spots partially on the quality of the links.
What is your superpower?
I’d like to think I have a good eye for talent and finding people who have the skills, but more importantly I have the determination needed to grow and scale a business as a team.
