Retail Expert & Business Leader
Tom has over 25 years’ experience in the UK retail and wholesale sector and is former co-owner of HIM shopper research consultancy. He has travelled the world, working with both regional and international retailers, wholesalers and FMCG suppliers to help improve their business.
Tom co-owned and ran the shopper insights consultancy ‘HIM’ for 17 years. Following their management buy-out, Tom scaled the niche business taking it from the UK into International markets and broadening the product and client mix, driving 50% EBITDA for 9 out of 10 years. He then oversaw a successful acquisition and integration of the business, before leaving for his next challenge.
"Training and personal development is important for everyone. We must all become 'lifelong learners'. The day we stop learning is the day we die. That's why I have joined Bolt."
Tom is a seed investor and NED at Bolt. He works full-time as MD and is responsible for building a winning commercial team and delivering against ambitious growth targets.
Tom's other passions are sport, travel, food & wine and spending time with amazing people.
"I love setting challenges for me, my family, my colleagues and my friends. We've done bike rides, marathons and parachute jumps for charity. Why? Because Life Is Not A Dress Rehearsal (LINADR). I want to cram as much into my short life as possible."
