Tom Gregoire was born and raised in Sherman Oaks, California, and went to college at Cal State in Northridge, where he majored in business. Right out of college, he started in sales selling photocopiers door-to-door to small and medium-sized businesses for 3M.
Entrepreneurship was his calling, and soon thereafter became an industrial real estate agent selling and leasing industrial buildings in and around downtown Los Angeles for CB Commercial. When real estate took a downturn in the late ’80s and early '90s, Tom decided to try something new that had been in the back of his mind since he was a kid.
Los Angeles had a booming movie entertainment industry that he wanted to try out. So, he started working for a post-production company, was hooked, and decided this was going to be his home for years to come. After over 20 years of success in the industry as a trained video engineer, the itch for entrepreneurship came upon him again. At this point, Tom decided to buy a franchise in Colorado. Tom moved his family and successfully ran his franchise for 6 years until selling it in 2015.
From the experiences of running his own business and sales experience in real estate, he decided to join RevLocal because he understands small business and the importance of getting found as a business and being chosen amongst the competition.
As far as personal life goes, Tom has two kids, is a huge Denver Broncos and LA Rams fan and loves to hike, bike, fish and pretty much anything that happens outdoors.
