Vice President of Pre-Lease Estimating | Partner
In the northern California city of Walnut Creek, Tom landed his first job at age 11, tossing newspapers for the Contra Costa Times. His work ethic has been unwavering ever since. In 1998, Tom moved to Arizona to attend ASU. He got his first taste of the construction industry as a carpenter at Southwest Scenic Group in Tempe.
A few years later, Tom met Jack Willmeng, who offered him an internship. The internship only lasted a month before he was hired on as a full-time estimator in 2010. Since then, Tom’s roles have increased in responsibility as his career has flourished at Willmeng. Tom attributes much of the company’s growth, and his personal career growth, to the entire team’s focus on client service. This focus includes upfront, real-time cost-estimating services that support the successful deal-making ability of owners, developers, brokers, and architectural teams.
Outside of work, Tom is deeply involved in business and client development through many associations, including serving on the Board of Directors for NAIOP Arizona and Executive Council 70.
Tom’s values are defined by faith and family, and he especially appreciates time spent with his wife Karen, and twin boys, Charlie and Luke. Outside of work, Tom is involved in philanthropic activities, and he enjoys spending time cooking, watching sports, and hanging out with friends.
“I find my greatest value to the client, whether local or national, in transferring their requests into a realistic, conceptual budget that achieves the best value by analyzing costs, asking critical questions, filling in the voids, and thinking ahead of the situation.”
