Tom Schwab- Extended Experience
Tom went to the United States Naval Academy and earned a BSME in Mechanical Engineering. He served aboard the USS Abraham Lincoln and was a nuke. Tom can trace the highlights in his life back to his time in the military. It taught him that just about anything can be systematized, taught and refined.
“I always tell people, I’ve done two major things in my life. One was run a nuclear power plant and the other one’s running a small business. And one of those was easier because it came with an instruction manual.” – Tom Schwab
Transitioning from the Navy to Corporate America
Tom transitioned from the Navy to a fortune 500 company in 1992. He loved working there but found that his work community was quite small and he wanted something larger. That caused him to go from the engineering side to the marketing side.
“But one of the things that really struck me probably within the first 18 months is that, I felt like I was on a submarine, right because my world was so small. I used to joke that if I didn’t work in the same building as you, go to the same church as you, or our kids didn’t go to school together, I didn’t know anybody.” – Tom Schwab
