Tom is the President / founder of Forsite Development Inc. and manages all aspects of the companies operations. Tom started Forsite in December 2004 with the idea that there was a significant supply of vacant corporate surplus industrial facilities throughout the Southeast that could be acquired aggressively and then repositioned. Since starting Forsite, Tom has purchased over 7 million SF of space throughout the Carolinas.

Forsite’s most ambitious project to date is “ReVenture Park”, a 667 acre re-development of a former Federal Superfund site into a “Renewable Energy Industrial Park” that is specifically focused on attracting renewable energy, alternative fuels and recycling projects.  The property, located along the shores of the Catawba River in Charlotte, NC and is the largest piece of under utilized heavy industrial property in the region.  Once complete, the project will create hundreds of new jobs and be a hub for new and emerging clean energy projects. Forsite was awarded the 2010 Business Innovation Award from the North Carolina Sustainable Energy Association for the proposed ReVenture Park project.

Prior to starting Forsite, Tom was a ten year veteran and Senior Vice President of Development for Indianapolis based Lauth Property Group. In July of 2001, Tom moved to Charlotte to open Lauth’s first regional office where he managed all build-to-suit, land development and construction activities that he and his team created in the Southeast.

Tom has a Bachelor of Science Degree in Marketing and Finance from Ball State University.  He currently serves on the Board of Directors for Holy Angels (www.holyangelsnc.org).
