Tom is the co-founder and owner of Your Love In Lights, a marquee letter rental company based in Needham, MA that supports social and corporate events across New England. He started the business with his wife Helen in 2015, opening a third act in a career that began in manufacturing and international business management and later in management consulting. He designs and builds all of the company’s products and loves the freedom and sense of ownership that comes with running his own business. Tom joined ILEA in 2016 and credits the relationships built there as keys to the early success of his business and his own learning and growth as a participant in the live events industry. This is Tom's fourth year on the board.
