The Evolution of Tom
Who is Tom Morganelli?
I grew up in Port Jefferson Station, NY a small suburb on the north shore of Long Island and am the oldest of four boys. I was a nightmare as a child; which, caused me to be sent to foster placement for a majority of my younger years. In a lot of ways; although tormented by the childcare system it has molded me into the person I am today.
Ever since I can remember, I have always been fascinated by business, the art of negotiation and the world of commerce. That fascination along with the street smarts I acquired as a child was the intoxicating combination that propelled me into entrepreneurialism.
I started a telecommunications business just prior to graduating high school and was able to reap the benefits of being at the forefront of the paging, cellular and long distance industry. When I left the industry, I learned web development and dabbled in several successful internet businesses.
Life has never been easy, I have seen a lot of ups and downs, including taking risks that caused me to lose everything; but, no matter what life throws my way I never give up and have an unwavering desire to be successful in everything that I do.
I have been pretty successful in business; however, I made it a point to complete college much later in life, graduating with a 4.0 and a degree in business after many sleepless nights.
Today, I work for one of the largest companies in the world and during my time there I have done some pretty innovative things. When I am not at my day job, I lend my time and experience to the business community and still walk with the same swagger I did as a kid.
I have been married to my best friend Kate for eight years, am a father of 4 (3 girls and a boy) and currently reside in Allen, Texas.
