As Founder and President of AquaGuard Foundation Solutions, Tom has strived for 25 years to perpetually raise customers' expectations of residential contractors and to prove to Georgia homeowners that AquaGuard remains "a service company with integrity".
Since 1995, Tom has built the AquaGuard team into one of the largest, most highly respected and award-winning waterproofing, foundation repair, concrete
leveling, and now gutter and roofing installation companies in the Southeastern United States. Tom was named Atlanta Metro Chamber's Business Person of the Year in 2015. Tom and AquaGuard have frequently been endorsed by Dave Baker's "Home Fix It Show",
WXIA's "Atlanta & Company", CBS's "Atlanta Plugged In", 104.7 FM The Fish's
morning co-host Kevin Avery, and 680 The Fan's Chuck Oliver and Steak Shapiro.
Personally, Tom is a strong advocate of both entrepreneurial growth and community service. Tom served as a Founding Member and Executive Advisory Board Member for Kennesaw State University's renowned Entrepreneurship Center. Tom is fiercely
competitive and has competed in many Atlanta area sports, including 20 years in
adult baseball and several tennis leagues. One of Tom's proudest
accomplishments was being named in 2018 to the MUST Ministries Board of
Directors for his and AquaGuard's continued time and monetary donations to
improve the lives of those in need.
