Voxer is a hybrid between a walkie-talkie and a Group Messaging App. It formally launched in May 2011 and has grown to millions of active users. Tom also co-founded Triple Canopy, a security company that he bootstrapped into an international business with over 7,000 employees. He remains Chairman and the largest shareholder.

He is a decorated combat veteran of the U.S. Army Special Forces (Green Berets). During his military service, Tom earned the Bronze Star and Combat Infantryman’s badge. After 9/11, Tom put his business career on hold to re-enlist in the Army. He returned to active duty with a Special Forces team and was deployed to Afghanistan in 2002 and 2003.

Tom was an 18E and received extensive training on all significant military communications systems. Tom was a Vice President at Netcentives, which built large-scale consumer marketing systems. As a Vice President at Citicorp, Tom was one of the founders of the Internet and ecommerce group and was the head of Internet Payment System development.
