Tom Harris isn’t your average CEO. Sure, he has a prestigious degree from The Ohio State University, PMP certification, and over 30 years of technology development experience. He’s also a recipient of the coveted Small Business Leader of the Year and CEO of the Year awards. But these achievements are not what makes Tom remarkable.

 

He doesn’t measure success by the size of his company or its profit margins. Since the day he helped found HMB in 1994, Tom put his employees above all else. Recognizing that the tech industry is a demanding and challenging field of work, Tom envisioned a firm that was for consultants, by consultants. A place where developers could truly advance in their careers and work on projects that satisfied their professional cravings.

 

The resulting company culture is Tom’s crowning achievement. His intent and dedication to his employees is evident in the 5-year winning streak for Columbus Business First’s Best Places To Work award and 4-year winning streak for Columbus CEO’s Top Workplaces award.

 

As modest as he is genuine, Tom maintains that HMB’s “product” isn’t IT solutions, but the incredibly talented people behind them. He’s a lead by example kind of guy who values honesty, transparency, and over communication.
