Why SSG?

“I was headhunted by Maggie McCormick. She pronounced my name wrong the first few times we spoke, but I didn’t have the heart to correct her until later.  Actually, I’m not sure I ever did correct her.”

Favorite Thing About Headhunting: 

“Every person has a story to tell and I hear a new one every day!”

Thom’s Story

Thom comes from the land of the ice and snow, from the midnight sun, where the hot springs flow. That’s actually a lyric from a Led Zeppelin tune which has nothing to do with Thom’s hometown of Buffalo, New York. He was born in Buffalo, but later moved to Albion where he attended high school. Once he graduated, he attended college at SUNY College at Brockport where he began playing Rugby for the Division 1AA Brockport Doggies. Thom has worked with several companies in the marketing space before coming to SSG and adds great insight into the marketing and sales worlds. Thom is a Bills fan and attends weekly group therapy sessions to deal with the pain of constant loss. If it weren’t for headhunting, we don’t know what Thom would be doing now.
