Chief Operating Officer
Tom always had a long-term goal to found a private security company. To improve his skill-set, he attended police academy in 1994 and worked for six years in a local sheriff’s office. He utilizes many of the community policing techniques he learned while on the force in his private practice today.
Before founding Priority Protection & Investigations, Tom spent five years as a security guard at a high-profile law firm, where he was eventually promoted to Security Captain. He has worked for the Houston Astros and several Fortune 500 companies as a security consultant. Many of his clients continued with Tom to become PPI clients after its founding.
Tom is proud to say that Priority Protection is still 100% family owned and operated.
