Thom is a native Mississippian where he attended the University of Southern Mississippi. His love of water, came from road trips made with family and friends visiting the Gulf Coast in the states of Mississippi, Alabama and Florida. Thom and his beautiful wife, Jeanine were blessed with two sons and one daughter. After 40 years, their family has grown to include two daughters-in-law and two granddaughters. Thom and his family settled in High Point, NC where all 3 children graduated high school. During his extensive career, Thom held executive positions with public companies which included more than 400 retail locations managed, over 1200 wholesale distributors and 40 manufacturing facilities both domestically and internationally, prior to his introduction into boating. Thom’s sons attended UNCW and during their visits, he and his wife fell in love with Wrightsville Beach and its surrounding areas. Because Thom’s dream was to live near salt water, when the opportunity to move to Wilmington as General Manager of MarineMax, the world’s largest boat retailer was offered, he gladly accepted. Thom’s knowledge of luxury yachts stems from his visits to several prestigious yacht building facilities both stateside and abroad in Italy. During his previous tenure, Thom attended world-class yacht expos and international boat shows, wherein he acted as a liaison between clients and manufacturers such as Sea Ray, Boston Whaler, Azimut, Ocean Alexander, Galeon, Chris-Craft, Hatteras, and Pursuit. Today, Thom’s focus is on providing first-class, personalized service to each of his luxury motor yacht clients. Licensed and bonded in Florida, Thom’s expertise and industry connections allows him to meet his clients needs, whether listing, selling or locating their next yacht.
