Thomas Morling graduated from Syracuse University and the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications and began working in Silicon Valley as an engineer at Intel Corp. Intel moved him to New York in the early 1980’s, where he began a very successful career in sales and sales management with various technology companies in financial services. He opened and built the New York office for Steve Jobs’ NeXT Computers in 1990 providing state-of-the-art computer systems to financial, media and entertainment, and advertising customers reaching a revenue peak of $27M in 1992.
He went on to help open the New York office for Viant in 1996, a highly influential consulting firm focusing on the Internet as a business platform for ecommerce and entertainment. At Viant, he was responsible for launching the first broadband music service on the Internet called Sputnik7 backed by Palm Pictures’ Chris Blackwell.
In early 2003, Thomas moved to another start-up called Induslogic located in Vienna, VA focused on bringing offshore development capabilities in India to small to medium sized software companies. Thomas organized and developed basic sales processes such as forecasting, pipeline management, and strategic account development and grew revenues from $1M to over $7M in two years. The firm today is known as Global Logic.
Since 2005, Thomas has been retained as an independent consultant working with start-ups and emerging growth companies to achieve breakthrough revenue and business development goals. Client industries include media and entertainment, financial services, and strategic consulting.
Leveraging years of experience with digital media, Thomas has specialized in enterprise digital asset management. He was the top sales performer for three years at North Plains Systems based in Toronto, Canada and in 2012 joined the Belgium-based company, ADAM Software which is expanding rapidly in the US.
