Outside of Waldron

Tom and his wife Pam are personally engaged in local and global philanthropic endeavors. “I’m truly fortunate, not everyone has the opportunity to blend their daily work, social network and intellectual interests into one seemless life. Working on social good with organizations deploying tradidional and innovatice soliutions is both stimulating professionally and personally energizing.”

Tom loves the game of tennis and competes in regional and United States Tennis Association (USTA) tournaments. He is a devoted husband and father of two college-age children.
