Tom's Experience

Tom started his career with UPS as a station manager. Taking the disciplineine he learned at UPS he jumped over to a consulting firm in NY. While there he developed a niche market for that firm that became known as "Interim Executive Search". His efforts to bring this niche to other search firms got the attention of Alan Schoenberg of Management Recruiters International. After spending a number of years building out the InterExec brand for MRI, Tom took the plunge and became a franchisee, where he took top office awards every year. In 2005 he broke away from MRI to form SearchPath.
