Tom Mense

Tom is an amazing CFO who is very consistent, honest, and gives wise counsel.  He has taken on some of the toughest challenges in our businesses and has seen them through to success. Tom was critical to the success of Intelligent Access Systems and a valued member of the senior leadership team.  The company was named on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest growing US companies for four straight years and won many other awards before it was sold in 2014.  Tom’s contributions to the success of that company were priceless.

Tom’s expertise and thoughtful approach was key to driving our growth and professionalizing our organization. He helped us think about our business in ways we hadn’t previously and unlocked areas of investment we hadn’t contemplated. Further, Tom’s caring and professional approach has enabled us to navigate difficult choices with confidence and clarity. During our 5+ years of working with Tom, he has not only been a great advisor and CFO but has also grown into a professional friend as well.
