Tom has done what very few of us are able to do. He has spent his life devoted to his passion and advising others on how they can follow-through with their passions and dreams.

Tom’s passion and interest in nutrition began as a college athlete and evolved thanks to some key mentors who educated him early on about the benefits of good nutrition in aiding performance. With an MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, Tom co-founded in 1996 the Nutrition Business Journal (NBJ) which within one year became the leading resource on the nutrition industry for major media outlets.

Tom’s career has evolved to allow him to be a keynote speaker, an advisor, an investor, and a mentor for those interested in growing and developing their nutrition business. As the Founder and Co-Chair of the NBJ/Newport Summit, the leading executive nutrition summit in the industry, Tom is deeply involved and invested in the success of the nutrition industry. He is also the Founding Partner of Health Business Partners, a consulting and investment firm that meets the needs of the nutrition industry.
