Tom has spent the last 28 years in the telecommunications industry. During that time, he has worked for U.S. West and several interconnect companies.
He’s spent the last 20+ years working with Elert & Associates on complex telecommunications systems. Initially, Tom focused on telecommunications systems, call processing applications, large call centers, and related systems.
More recently, he has been involved in a wide breadth of projects that are not only technically complex, but politically complex as well. Tom has the ability to get stakeholders of complex projects to find common ground.
Tom continues to stay creative by painting and playing acoustic and bass guitar, and he enjoys family time spent at the Northern Command Center (cabin) near Brainerd, MN.
