President, CEO of Swip Systems

Hi, I’m Tom. 

I am on a personal mission to help business owners grow and maintain profitable businesses through the use of technology.

Starting his first company at age 9 washing windows for Main Street businesses, Tom continued his teenage mechanical and entrepreneurial journey as a repair tech for bicycles, boats, and race cars. This path led him to acquire a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering from Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville.

Tom has been developing and streamlining business processes for over 25 years. Cutting his teeth at UPS out of college, Tom’s expertise lies in business process automation and software application design.

While working for UPS, Tom was instrumental in implementing revolutionary technology that is still in use today, including:

  1. The first tablets ever used by drivers
  2. The first nationwide barcoding system
  3. The first nationwide wireless implementation in UPS trucks

Swip Systems is Tom’s international technology consultancy company. He is currently President/CEO. After recognizing the need for more community support for the manufacturing sector through his work at Swip Systems, Tom founded the Midwest Manufacturing Leaders (MML). This organization is aimed at strengthening the manufacturing community and stabilizing the region’s economy. In addition, Tom is an owner and mentor to startups at various stages of growth and development.
