EXECUTIVE ENDEAVORS OFFICER | RALLY COACH

Tom excelled in prep sports growing up in Omaha, NE. He was a varsity athlete in football and soccer and also competed in wrestling and basketball during the winters. He went on to play soccer at Creighton University for a season before realizing if he was going to be an all-American in collegiate sports, it would have to be in an intramural setting!

Today Tom operates as both the co-founder of Rally Point Endeavors and Business Leader for Australia and Canada lending for Enova International. The first 8 years of his professional career were spent in business transactions working on mergers and acquisitions for businesses all over the world. He has worked on transactions from middle America, to Eastern Europe and everywhere in between. Over the last 7 years he took on a different role with Enova International serving as Director of Finance for 5 years and then getting promoted to head 2 country’s business operations. His specialties include leading cross-functional teams, management, and out-of-the-box thinking.

He has a great deal of love and dedication for his day (and sometimes night) job, but additionally has a deep passion for helping every person be the best them. Thus, the concept of RPE was born and the pursuit was on. Over the last 3 years he has focused his free time on helping struggling CrossFit boxes and moving them to profitability. He has done this by both, introducing proper metrics/reporting to operate by and by offering consistent, meaningful interaction with all members. Bottom line, his professional expertise, coupled with his interpersonal skills, make him a force in the wellness community.
