C12 Chair since 2011

Territory Served

Tom is excited to expand the C12 Group’s reach to Christian CEOs across North Texas. He has had the privilege to serve dozens of business owners since he became a Chair in 2011. Now he has the additional honor to lead a territory team that works together to increase the business and eternal impact of C12. Following a 28-year career at Texas Instruments, Tom founded a consulting practice for small-to-medium size companies focused on business strategy and competitive intelligence. He is the author of the Strategically Thinking blog. Tom’s experiences are deep and varied. He led product development teams, worked on business growth strategies and created a systems architecture team for a $500M business education technology firm. His key interests were examining how to effect change in a successful organization and how to mentor others through those changes. More recently, he spent several years in a $4B Wireless semiconductor business where the focus was on software strategy and competitive intelligence. Tom created a division-wide competitive intelligence (CI) program that tracked 15 major competitors, established standards for doing CI and completed many studies for senior management. Along with his wife, Gerri, Tom has a passion for learning and applying God’s lessons to all aspects of life. His entire family is involved in missions work around the world. Tom serves as a teacher at his church in Allen, Texas. His life verses are Jeremiah 29:11-13 (ESV): “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.”
