When one focuses on relationships, winning sales follows. However, when the sole focus is on sales, valuable relationships can be lost." Thomas, a seasoned financial industry professional with over 30 years of experience in business development, has upheld this philosophy throughout his career. With a background encompassing 21 years in retail banking and 17 years in management roles, he has achieved success through two key approaches. First and foremost, Thomas prioritizes understanding the needs of a client, enabling them to make tailored recommendations that bring value to clients' lives. Secondly, Thomas leverages his extensive network in two distinct ways. He connects clients with quality professionals who can address their needs beyond the scope of their own services. Additionally, he identifies the ideal customer profiles for his clients and introduces them to professionals working with similar customers, fostering mutually beneficial relationships that drive business growth. This approach builds trust-based relationships and provides a unique value that sets Thomas apart. Thomas's motivation stems from his family, including his wife of over 15 years and his two children. A fascinating aspect of Thomas’s life outside of work is his involvement in studying historical martial arts from Western Europe spanning the 13th to 17th centuries, through an esteemed group known as Phoenix Swords.
