He was drawn there by his love of the mountains and he raised the spirits of everyone he met. A formidable skier and a wonderful climber, Tom loved the quiet of the mountains and the lake. He had...  see more

    I was completely caught off guard by this news as Tom is in my electronic file of people to connect with during recruiting season. I first got to know him at Leysin American School around 2011 when I needed a last minute math teacher and he was starting...  more

    Like a few people on here, I met Tom through work at Teachanywhere, where we quickly became good friends. It is difficult not to like Tom. He is kind, conscientious, caring and a funny guy.

    And so when he set up his own consultancy, I was honoured...  more

    I met Tom many years ago when I hired him for his first teacher recruitment job. I could tell he was a natural - intelligent, ambitious, engaging and caring. The things that make you a good person make you a good recruiter. He was such a charismatic...  more

    My deepest condolences to Tom’s partner and family. I worked with Tom before he started Compass and he was a wonderful member of our small team and a really good friend. Although we worked in different countries, when we did all meet up we had some...  more

    I first heard about Tom in around 2015 when I was working in Madrid with the school Principals in the King's College group. We were chatting over dinner and got onto the subject of teacher recruitment. First one, then another and before long all of...  more

    It is lovely to read all these messages about Tom. I knew him professionally before he became a good friend, so I’m probably sharing different thoughts here. We first met in c.2008, before he set up Compass. He told me that he wanted to work for...  more

    I had the good fortune to share an afternoon with Tom as we drove up to Verbier to purchases season passes together this past fall. Bosco sat in my lap, happy as a clam, as we talked about our shared love of skiing, the mountains and how we had both come...  more

    Lucky our paths crossed through our coworking space in Vevey.
    Tom was such a caring person, such a beautiful soul.
    We used to bring our dogs to the park (Bosco and Mina became friends since little when they were adopted) and had some cafe breaks...  more

    I met Tom at the Office Hub in Vevey. He was a very warm and friendly guy, and although we have been surrounded by many wonderful Swiss colleagues, it was great to be able to share some british humour and regular laughs with him.
    He came to do circuits...  more

    Desperately sad that Tom has left this world too soon. Such a cheery, warm personality. One memory that still brings a smile to my face was at Lucille's christening; Tom and I were both named godparents; and when we arrived for the christening, Tom...  more

    Tom was my best friend in primary school. Nothing but great memories in Toms company. I loved going swimming every Friday after school. Had a few ‘firsts’ with Tom, a bbq at the lovely family home, canoeing and Alton Towers. Once we were trusted to...  more

    Such sad news. We only met Tom once at Paul and Kirstens wedding, but he was such a lovely, warm and friendly person. So generous, inviting us to stay with him in Switzerland, as Karen mentioned it was somewhere she would love to go. We're sure he will...  more
