After running a hugely successful painting business in Vancouver, B.C. with Student Works, Thomas went on to become District Manager where he coached, consulted, and mentored more than 30 franchise operators across the province. Taking a position in Management Consulting, Thomas was able to help provide entrepreneurs with the tools to scale businesses, while also completing an MBA in Business Administration.
As a Business Coach at Breakthrough Academy, Thomas is able to bring a strong balance of business acumen and practical entrepreneurship to help contracting leaders grow both personally and in business, and to affect positive change in the construction industry overall.
Outside of work, Thomas is a true West Coast boy: you are likely to find him competing in beach volleyball, taking “lethal” strikes on the soccer pitch (which he insists is open for debate), carving fresh lines on his skis, lake swimming, camping out under the stars, or soaking in new cultures in far flung places.
