Tom Combs

Owner

From a young age, Tom learned the value of integrity, consistency, positivity, and hard work, and has focused on these traits ever since. Whether it was during his years as a teenage paperboy or college-aged grocery store employee, or throughout his vast IT staffing experience, helping people solve their challenges has been his priority and key to success. During his 17 years with Select Resources, Tom has put his problem-solving, leadership, creative, and productivity skills to work in creating the vision and overseeing strategy and operations for the organization. Despite that length of time, he still gets a thrill each time a job seeker connects with a great job and finds it to be one of the most rewarding aspects of his profession. Tom’s passion is for the win, win, win – a person gets a job, a client secures a valuable resource for their company, and Tom gets to make a positive impact on others.
