A native of Clarksville, Tennessee, Tommy Smith has resided in the Nashville area his entire life. Currently, he's a "long-term" resident of Mount Juliet, just east of Nashville. Tommy studied Business Management and Computer Science at Lipscomb University in Nashville.
His career in sales began, oddly enough, by driving a forklift at Ingram Book Company. After college, that experience with heavy cartons of books led to a long career in media sales, publishing and educational research. There were a few breaks in those genres to sell computer supplies, tires and commercial printing.
Tommy's engagement with small businesses fueled a respect for the ingenuity and resilience that drives small business owners. He actively supports locally-owned SMB's at every opportunity, in particular where pizza is involved.
In his spare time Tommy is usually in his backyard playing disc golf, landscaping or chopping wood on some remote family property. When indoors he's an internet nerd.
