Dave Koz
Grammy nominated artist

"Tom has been a friend and partner to me and Pama for almost a decade. He has, through his many years in the music business, and his enormous network, been able to orchestrate deals and give us that vital "foot in the door" with executives and major companies that otherwise would have been out of reach for us. Since we are operating out of Scandinavia, with a considerable distance to markets like Japan and the US, this has been of crucial importance to our growth. His know-how, insight and experience has also been a source of development for our company in an increasingly complicated era in the music business.

Tom's likable persona in addition to his extensive world travels, has helped him develop a natural way of interacting with people from different cultures. He has that rare ability to make people relax and feel at ease."
