Until 2017, Tom spent more than two decades as a leader at CEB, Inc. (NYSE: CEB) – the majority of that time as CEO, then Chairman and CEO. As part of the CEB's leadership, Tom and his colleagues helped redefine how the world's leading companies make their most important decisions. By tapping the collective experience of and analyzing performance data from more than 10,000 companies, CEB created authoritative insights, technology tools, and management resources to help companies manage talent, innovation, and risk. Across Tom’s tenure with the company, CEB grew revenue nearly fifty times, and achieved an industry leading EBITDA margin structure.

The firm was one of the fastest growing professional/information service companies globally throughout the past two decades and remains one of the most respected authorities on talent management, commercial operations, financial management, performance management, and diversity, equity and inclusion, since its acquisition by Gartner for $3.4 billion in April 2017.
