About Tom

Tom Perry created Engaged Pursuit because he saw the need for a new kind of service – one that builds employee engagement for individuals and companies through career clarity.

Clients benefit from Tom’s 20 years of experience at leading organizations like Microsoft and Razorfish. He’s built and managed global teams from scratch, interviewing thousands of candidates and hiring hundreds of full-time employees.
