Recently, Tom has focused efforts on launching his new book: Next Stage: In Your Retirement, Create the Life You Want. As he began his own “Next Stage,” he wanted to figure out how to make it purposeful and fulfilling. After reading many books about retirement and talking with many retirees, he determined that something important was missing in the market – a resource book that is comprehensive, integrated, easy to understand, and offers concrete guidance on how each person can create the life they want. He shows readers how to understand and manage the retirement transition by learning how to find new directions, assess their financial conditions, create new relationships, stay healthy and become the person they want to be as they enter their own Next Stage.
Prior to forming Wilson Group, Tom was the National Director of Rewards for Aubrey Daniels & Associates; Partner and General Manager of New England for Hay Group, Inc.; and Director of Organizational Consulting for the Forum Corporation. He holds a Master’s degree from Vanderbilt Owen School of Management and Bachelor’s degree from Southern Methodist University.
