Regional Sales Manager
Tom is a Regional Sales Manager at ABS, joining the crew in 2005. He graduated from James Madison University in 1997 with a Bachelor of Arts.
Tom is responsible for managing sales and development in the Roanoke region. He is a Cisco Solutions Expert and DCJS Certified. In 2006 he was honored as the ABS Account Manager of the year and in 2008, the ABS Employee of the Year.
He is not afraid to stand up in front of a crowd; this man has a flair for presentations and public speaking. Perhaps it originated in college when he was forced to take the stage in a one-act play he wrote and produced after one of his actors failed to show up. The character was a womanizing, foul-mouthed individual who wore nothing but his boxers the entire production. Thus fulfilling the nightmare of being naked (or almost naked) in front of an audience.

What do you like most about working at ABS?
ABS has given me the opportunity to develop and grow while having impact on both my team and the company as a whole (where my talents intersect with corporate direction and needs). I’ve always appreciated the way we value relationships and seek to develop good people into great resources.
