PRESIDENT, TGA SOLUTIONS
Tom Glover believes that the challenge of life is to live your life doing what is right every time, all the time. His integrity, strength of character, and vision have all combined to make him the successful and well-respected president of TGA Solutions.
Tom lives his life with the expectation that people will always do their best. He believes in going the extra mile for people. This is reflected in his philosophy of not dwelling on the bad things that happen, but focusing on the good. Through experience, Tom has learned that when you make a mistake, you must be willing to forgive yourself, forget, and move on. At work, Tom instills loyalty in his employees by providing a safe and secure workplace where they can feel loved and respected.
Tom’s strong belief in serving his country was reflected in his decision to enlist in the United States Air Force after graduating from high school. He served in the Air Force for eight years, including a one-year tour in Vietnam. While in the Air Force, Tom attended business school and graduated with a programming degree. He then continued his education, accumulating over 100 credit hours toward a degree in business.
In 1970 Tom left the Air Force to pursue a career in data processing. He gained vast knowledge with several major corporations starting with an IBM 360-30 DOS system. Tom’s IT experience took him from Austin, TX, to Spartanburg, SC, with stops along the way in Dallas, Memphis and Atlanta.
A defining moment in Tom’s life was when he was unemployed, prompting him to realize that real financial security was not guaranteed by being employed at a large corporation. This insight started him down the road to opening TGA. In December of 1980, Tom and his wife, Linda, opened the doors of Thomas Glover Associates to recruit IBM systems programmers, DBA and other IT professional for major corporations across the United States. Tom soon saw that the harder they worked the more fortunate they became.
Tom’s expertise in technology blended with the success and evolution of his staffing agency, has led to the successful sales and professional services firm TGA Solutions is today.
Tom’s beloved wife, Linda, has been the most influential person in his life, by his own admission. They began dating in high school, where he concedes he was not an exemplary student until meeting Linda. Once Tom saw Linda’s report card, Tom became very competitive and landed on the honor roll from then on.
Family is Tom’s priority outside of work – he and Linda have two wonderful children and three grandchildren who they adore. Tom strives to be a role model for all who know him, continually giving back to his community in many capacities. Tom is particularly proud of being a Bible school teacher for over 20 years these life principles are at the core of who he is.
