Thomas Triumph helps companies grow by collaboratively working on vital areas of their business – Technology, Product Development, and Marketing. He is a hands-on executive with a record of achievement managing dozens of innovative products within several different industries – and within Fortune 500 and startup companies. Tom is the author of the book Evolve or Die: Lessons for World-Class Innovation & Creativity. The book contains a culmination of experiences, thoughts, and learning– much of it from world-class innovators and creators. Tom has helped large organizations act more nimbly in the market and small companies scale. Leading Marketing and Business Development, he has launched numerous technology products and led cross-functional teams – including participating in two technology revolutions – less invasive medical devices and the Internet/software. Tom has been a part of some remarkable technology and business growth success stories (as well as some misfires). Building submarines out of 55-gallon drums in grade school, he eventually fulfilled a childhood dream of living aboard a research ship (Jacques Cousteau was on the Board of Directors) and tending to the mini-sub. Tom also wrestled in the Olympic Trials, founded a consumer electronic company (Athletech), and worked for leading companies to help launch and lead: medical device products, software, Internet companies, professional consulting services, and the largest hovercraft ever built in the U.S. from composite materials (25 ton). He’s an enthusiastic and collaborative team player who maintains a good sense of humor. He resides in North Carolina and is an ultrarunner who envies Tom Hanks’ long run as Forrest Gump.
