Tom is originally from the East Coast, but saw the light, and has been living here in Southern California for just over 10 years. He has 18 years of total work experience within corporate America. It is his early foundation within Corporate Finance that has helped Tom make the transition over to recruiting in the last decade. Tom has worked in executive search for over 9 years. Before starting Lockstep, Tom worked at Lucas Group, a nationwide executive search firm, as a Senior Partner in their Accounting & Finance Practice Group. Prior to Lucas Group, Tom helped found and run Gotham Partners; a search firm, again focused within the accounting and finance industries here in Southern California. Before recruiting, Tom started off his career in Investment Banking in New York working for Merrill Lynch in their Telecom Industry group. Post Merrill, Tom spent several years at a few small hedge funds and two years as the Financial Analyst for Citadel Communications. Lockstep is the culmination of Tom’s strong entrepreneurial passions and his solid financial professional experience.
He holds a BA in Art History and a minor in Economics from the University of Chicago. Outside the office, Tom enjoys playing golf poorly and running along the Strand in Manhattan Beach and is always attempting to find time to put a few more stamps in that passport.
