“If we don’t take care of the customer, somebody else will.”
Tom has always followed this quote, without thought. While the phrase is just a few words to some, to Tom, it is the best practice to achieve success. He is truly a multi-faceted entrepreneur, which allows him to wear various “hats” on a daily basis. He is a Producer, a Special Effects Artist, a Photographer, a Volunteer, and multiple business owner.
He has been the owner/operator of “Thomas James Productions”, an entertainment technology company, for the past 27 years. He is a Senior Partner and the Chief Operating Officer for Chicago’s “Vase Entertainment Group”, a high immersion media production company and he’s involved with several other business ventures outside of the entertainment industry.
In his spare time, Tom is an avid community volunteer working with Community Theatres, Museums, Arts organizations and the “Toys for Tots Foundation”. Tom is currently a board member for Indiana’s oldest non-profit theatre and has been its board president. Tom also enjoys facilitating board retreats for 501(c)3 organizations who are looking to grow.
He is a member of the “International Brotherhood of Magicians” where, at one time, he was a performer. He is still a member, 30 years later, and was inducted into the “Order of Merlin” in 2011. Even though Tom hung up his top hat and wand a long time ago, he continues to perform magic…of sorts… for others every day.
