3 minutes with Thom Tate – gomo’s latest US member!

by Elle Brown

At gomo, we take hiring very seriously because it’s our amazing staff who make our company what it is. It’s these teams that allow us to create a world-class product for our customers to love too! We’re saying a huge hello to Thom Tate, our brand new Business Development Manager in the United States. We took a couple of minutes to get to know Thom a little better.

Tell us about yourself – who is Thom?
I’m a kid at heart that loves life, works hard and plays even harder. I love cars, snow skiing, cooking, boating, writing, playing and coaching lacrosse and having a great time with friends and family.

What’s your greatest achievement?
My two beautiful daughters; Morgan [14] and Kendall [10] and being able to provide for them.

What’s your background?
My degree is in Business Administration, but I have nearly 20 years training experience and 24 years of sales experience in some capacity, whether direct sales, as a pre-sales engineer or post sales support and trainer.

What most excites you about joining gomo?
It is almost precisely what I was doing when I was with Atlantic Link. I really enjoy the elearning industry. I enjoy the direct contact with the customer and building relationships. I love being relevant and coming back to a small team gives me that feeling. It is surprising how lost you get in the crowd when you’re only one of 23,000 employees (my former job). I also thoroughly enjoyed working with Mike Alcock and am looking forward to working with him again.

Finally, favourite chocolate bar and why?
100,000 dollar bar. I like the chewy caramel and crispy rice.
