He carries on his father’s legacy and continues with the philosophy his dad taught him which is “I have never needed a sale so bad I hurt anyone”. Honesty and reputation are everything in the business world. Tom is a graduate of the University of Alabama with a degree in business management. He has a wife, Kathie, been married since 2000 and has 3 great kids that he loves teaching what life is all about. Tom enjoys working out, participates in many triathlons, marathons and loves watching Alabama football.
