Previously, Tom served as president of the Audubon Society of New Hampshire. He was a senior-level official in the Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Air and Radiation, where he won the Gold Medal for his role in achieving consensus with businesses and environmentalists on a pollution-control project at Grand Canyon National Park.
