Experienced, Reliable, Ready
I had the pleasure of working with Tom at NYU during the 2019-2020 academic year as he led Change Management activities for one of my services going through a transition. Tom came up to speed very quickly and didn’t skip a beat when NYU transitioned to a Telework posture during COVID-19. Most importantly, he delivered his objectives — leading to the successful completion of that phase of the project. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Tom again on future projects.

“I worked for Tom for over a year in this position. He is a bright, hard-working leader who challenges his employees to stretch themselves and achieve great results. He combines outstanding analytical skills with a penchant for Shakespeare and les choses françaises… What more can I say?”

“Tom is a well organized and logical thinker, who provides a center of calm in the midst of major organizational change. His ability to ferret out the right information at the right time is a testament to his internal networking and amiable nature. He consistently provides leadership with the opportunity to make decisions fully informed.”

“I have had the pleasure of having Tom work for me directly and then when I was an internal client of his at AT&T. Tom’s dedication to the client and his focus on delivering high quality results to them has been consistently present throughout.
Having kept in touch with Tom over the years it has been rewarding in his ability to look at the business holistically and provide sound professional advice and direction. It is a pleasure to see someone with the skills Tom has using them to their fullest to the delight of his clients but also his own self in that he truly enjoys the challenges and opportunities his clients bring to him.”
Steve ObermeierPresident at SWORHO MANAGEMENT INC
Tom was an invaluable resource on the projects I managed. In the first two weeks of him joining the team we made more progress in the area of change management than in the previous two months. He brought his wealth of expertise in organizational change management to bear, including best practices and templates. He even volunteered to be the point person for collating the responses and follow-ups, freeing up project team members to perform other tasks. Tom was very responsive and flexible, always putting the client’s needs first. I came to him once with an urgent task needing to be presented within a few hours. Even though this typically required a week’s lead-time, he dropped what he was working on and got it done!
“Tom is a very dedicated and knowledgeable HR professional. He always considers challenges from all angles and can be totally relied upon to deliver. He is a pleasure to work with and is always prepared to help when asked. Tom is a true gentleman with a great sense of humour who fits into any team effortlessly.”

“I had the pleasure of working with Tom at Barclays. My lasting memory of Tom was his ability to just get lots of stuff done! He has an incredible work ethic – working tirelessly to complete a project or job – and in my experience always going the extra mile. If you are looking for a talented HR professional and project manager – Tom is your man.”

“I had the privilege of working with Tom on the Alcatel-Lucent merger. Throughout the course of our integration efforts, Tom proved to be an excellent partner – thorough, forward-thinking, quality-focused and extremely dependable. An exceptional, well-rounded and personable colleague!”
“Tom is diligent and conscientious with his work, and always looking for the best solutions to a problem. I’ve found him to be very collaborative and a trusted colleague.”
John NawrathPartner/Principal at EY
“Tom has worked with me at two companies (Alcatel Lucent and Barclays). When I moved to Barclays I knew I needed his skills in strategic HR. Tom is an experienced, professional, strategic thinker who puts ideas into operation. We implemented a Talent system that is used global for retail banking (circa 60,000 retail employees) Tom can adapt the existing system or help structure an entirely new approach to talent, career progression, development, HR operations and management information. Tom delivered collaboratively, on time and beyond expectations. I will look to hire Tom again in the future.”
Mary EdmundsSenior Managing Director – Human Resources at Hines
“Tom has been a great asset to the Barclays UKRB HR team. In addition to his strategic direction, Tom has been instrumental in getting a number of new initiatives launched, specifically the new talent agenda and our career pathing online tool.”
Steven McGroryHR Director UK Retail Banking
“Tom’s a broadly capable “utility infielder”, a committed professional, and a rare pleasure to work with. He ably handled a diverse set of responsibilities, including helping form our leading edge HR Advisory Council. He solicits feedback, rather than just waiting for it, and smoothly incorporates it into his work. I would gladly include Tom in any team of mine. “
