Board of Directors

Tom is founder and past CEO of the Vancouver-based consulting firm, Entrepreneur Coach Inc – a company that specializes in strategic joint ventures with uniquely socially responsible businesses, primarily through franchise development. Tom has helped some two hundred businesses start and expand over his twenty years of entrepreneur coaching.

After launching Entrepreneur Coach Inc. in 1995, his first joint venture was with Puckmasters Hockey Training Centers, the world’s first one-on-one hockey training franchise, now operating in more than a dozen states and provinces, with an average 3-year growth of 71.2% per year while Tom was involved. The growth in golf led Tom and the founding team from hockey to golf and in 1999, the concept of Parmasters was born.

As Co-Founder in 2000 of our predecessor Parmasters Golf Training Centers, Tom was then appointed President & CEO of Parmasters in July, 2002.  

An international speaker and best-selling author, he is considered by many to be an inspiration, motivator and a strong force in the push towards ethics in our modern business world.

As President and CEO, Tom manages strategic growth and franchise awarding at Team Headquarters, is Chairman of the Board, and sits on the Human Resources & Compensation Committee and the Corporate Governance Committee.
