As Connected Nation’s President, Tom provides vision and leadership for all aspects of Connected Nation operations, which includes industry-leading policy and research operations helping shape national technology policy, groundbreaking community engagement and digital literacy efforts impacting thousands across the nation, and technical and mapping services as the largest federal State Broadband Initiative grantee.

Tom also serves as the company’s Chief Operating Officer, a position he’s held since 2010. Under his leadership, the Connected Nation portfolio has expanded to include 30 states and thousands of communities, and being recognized as the national leader in broadband mapping, planning, and program implementation.

Among Connected Nation’s pioneering efforts to expand broadband to unserved and underserved communities is the development of the “Connected” community engagement program, where communities gather technology champions to evaluate the current state of adoption, access, and use of broadband in their area and then formulate an action plan with measurable, implementable solutions. When complete, the program provides a nationally recognized platform for spotlighting communities that are excelling across all broadband adoption, access, and use measurements.
