Chief Executive Officer
An award-winning political strategist, Tom has brought more than 20 years of experience to TargetSmart where he gets to lead the best political data and strategy company in the United States.
After 18 years working at the National Committee for an Effective Congress where he started as an intern while at The American University and worked his way to chief operating officer, Tom co-founded Clarity Campaign Labs with TargetSmart to create one of the nation’s top analytics and research firms.
Becoming CEO of TargetSmart was the only job that could pull Tom away from Clarity Labs (short of being asked to be the bullpen catcher for the Boston Red Sox) – so he took it in November, 2014.
Recognized as one of the top 50 Influencers in campaigns by Campaign and Elections magazine, Tom has been quoted frequently in interviews with the New York Times, Washington Post, Wall Street Journal and Politico and has been a featured guest on “All Things Considered” on National Public Radio, as well as other national radio programs.
Originally from Andover, Mass. Tom lives with his wife and two daughters in Howard County, Md.
