Having lived in Sothern Illinois his whole life, and coming from a house with two SIU Alumni, Thomas truly does bleed Saluki Maroon. Thomas was very active in his undergrad years at SIU, having been on the E-board of both the American Marketing Association and Pi Sigma Epsilon Business Fraternity. Thomas also worked as a Resident Assistant for three years of his undergrad, where two of those years were in Brown hall (the business resident hall). Completing his undergrad in Marketing and Business Economics in Spring 2017 he knew furthering his education and obtaining a M.B.A. at SIU was the right choice.

If Thomas is not in the office planning employer visits or career trips, you can find him enjoying a walk around campus or catching the latest movie at the local AMC theater.
