 If experience is the best teacher, then Tom Alexander is a walking case study for exerting influence effectively.  Tom is a leader in inclusion and diversity, and the founding partner of Holistic, a technology firm dedicated to improving the entire employee experience through the use of data.

Before founding his own company, Tom was the COO for 1871, one of the largest technology incubators in the United States, and the number one rated university-affiliated incubator in the world. His role included managing external relations with government and media partners.

Tom also served as deputy communications director for Mayor Rahm Emanuel, where he oversaw day-to-day communications strategy and long-term planning, written press materials, and coordination among city agencies. He also played a leading role on the Mayor’s economic council, where he worked to attract and retain companies and jobs to Chicago.

Prior to his time in the Mayor’s office, Tom served as a senior communications director at the University of Chicago, a policy and communications projects director in the Office of the Governor of Illinois, and a senior disaster analyst for the U.S. Small Business Administration in Washington, DC.

Tom earned his BA in Political Science from the University of Chicago,  and his MPPA in Public Policy Administration at Northwestern University.
