Tom got his start in the construction industry in 2006 after transplanting to Billings from Arizona so he and his wife could raise their 2 boys closer to his wife’s family. With a background in public service safety, Tom was a fit for an Electrical contractor that was starting a project at the Conoco Refinery. That opportunity snowballed into opportunities over the years with various construction companies in the Billings area, eventually leading to his position at KLE.
Prior to working for KLE, Tom has held Safety Positions with several construction companies in the Billings area involved in activities from heavy civil, electrical, to refinery work. Tom spent 16 years in public safety in Arizona. First as an EMT, then a Paramedic with a local Ambulance provider, then as a full-time firefighter paramedic in Kingman Arizona, leaving in 2006 at the rank of Captain to move to Montana where his wife was born and raised.
In Tom’s spare time, he enjoys hunting, fishing and camping and enjoying all of Montana’s natural resources. Tom also likes attending the MSU Bobcat games.
