A thirty-five year veteran of the insurance industry, Tom has spent the last twenty-five years leading and supervising disability sales for Westshore Financial Group. Over his quarter-century career with Guardian, Tom has trained hundreds of Westshore representatives and brokers from all over the country. Tom’s relentless drive to educate other professionals, to consult on advanced disability cases, and to negotiate the best offers possible for his producers and their clients has allowed tens of thousands of clients to protect the well-being of their families through his income protection strategies.
At the young age of 23, Tom entered Shearson Lehman’s “Fast-Track” management program in the early 1980’s and ran their “DTC” division on Wall Street. That experience left him with a desire to make his living in the fast-paced financial services world. Since then, Tom has gone on to establish himself as one of Guardian’s most ELITE Disability Supervisors by qualifying for Guardian’s prestigious “DI Inner Circle” and “Leader’s Club” awards virtually every year since his start in 1996.
Tom was raised in Jersey City, N.J. along with his four siblings. As children of a Fire Chief, they were introduced early in life to the premise that everybody pulls their own weight and is accountable for their actions. And that philosophy still rings true today in Tom’s day-to-day brokerage practice. Tom will often say, “I’ll help anyone who is interested in helping themselves. As far as I’m concerned, we are in this together!” Tom moved to Florida in 1986 and currently lives in Oldsmar, FL with his beautiful wife, Sherri. When he’s not working you can normally find him hunting, fishing or traveling with his top-ranked Florida senior softball team. Go Silver Rays!
