Co-founder and CEO, Forage
Tom is CEO and co-founder of Forage, which he started along with co-founder Pasha in 2017. Prior to Forage, Tom was an M&A attorney at a global law firm (King & Wood Mallesons) specializing in cross-border transactions. In this role, Tom realized there was a disconnect between university and the world of work. Moreover, it was obvious that large corporate firms were intimidating and seemed inaccessible to many students who lacked connections. From here, Forage was born.
Today, Forage aims to give all students the means to advance their careers for free. They work with world-class companies globally (e.g. Goldman Sachs, JPM, Deloitte, GE, BCG and others) to create virtual training courses where students build skills and confidence through life-like work simulations. With over 1 million students and 75 companies on the platform, Tom is passionate about helping students find their dream careers at great companies.
Although based in San Francisco, Tom is a proud Australian, having grown up in Wagga Wagga and Sydney. He enjoys running, supporting his beloved Australian Rules team, and spending time with his wife Georgie and their schnauzer, Frankie.
