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 Tate?
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  and Kendall  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.
Thank you Thom, we’re delighted to welcome you aboard – welcome to the gomo family!
